Some people do not really understand the depth of strikes, the way it affects people and the industrial conflicts it holds. The tediousness of strikes are really alarming only to those that it affects[ the common people].The fact that even though the problem is mostly between the workers and the government it still affects us the people who are subject to their services. Let's bring it down to the lowest level: the way it affects students, these strikes make students under government academic institutions fall behind on academic work and opportunities, for example the ASUU strike in Nigeria, many students spent six (6) years in school for a four (4) years course or program due to the ASUU strike. The strike causes many students to spend extra years in school and prolong their schooling time.
Now I would like to know of the depth of strikes in your surroundings and the way it affects the people of your community and whether its true effects are understood. It could even affect close ones, but how?
