One of the largest strikes in history occurred in the Roman Empire in 494 BC, when the common people, who are a higher class than slaves and make up construction workers, bakeries and services, went on strike for their objection to a law that increased the size of their debts. Their complete cessation of work not only abolished the unfair law, but also ensured the presence of a representative in the government.
Among the strangest strikes was a strike that France witnessed - which is already known for the strangeness of its strike topics - last year, when thousands of judges went on strike after a French judge died due to overwork and the large number of cases.
Among the longest-running strikes was the strike of the workers of the Frontier Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, in protest of low salaries and inappropriate treatment, in September 1991. The strike lasted six years, four months and ten days. And it was terminated in February 1998. It is noteworthy that the strike was 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and was not violated by a single worker, and ended in favor of the workers.
As for the first recorded strike in history, it was in Egypt, according to the Guinness Book of Records. The craftsmen of the royal cemetery in "Deir el-Medina" organized a strike in the year 1152 BC, during the reign of Pharaoh Ramses III, and the events of the strike are recorded in detail on an Egyptian papyrus.
The papyrus does not stipulate the worker's right to strike, but it does indicate that the worker did strike, and that the worker's strike sometimes led to results in his favor, and at other times in favor of the employer, the ruler, or the government.
Governments do not like strikes
Governments don't like strikes, but workers do. When a worker with a long history in the world of strike reaches a chair in the ministry, he finds himself torn between his strike history and his political present. It is the year of strike.
