Strike which is also called labour strike can be defined as work stoppage by people who are employed to work due to their dissatisfaction in their working conditions, their pay e.t.c.
Strike has a lot of effect on people both negatively and positively. Strike affects the economy, it affects the cost of production and of course productivity (wages and salaries as well as other payment . It affects the student by making them idle and this can lead them to engage in some criminal activities such as: theft, robbery, kidnapping e.tc .it can also make them to look down on their education and they might start taking it as something that is irrelevant. It also affects the country when there is a long strike it has negative effect on employment, it reduces business confidence and increases the risk of economic failure. Strikes has a major setback on the growth of the economy and investment opportunies .
Strike also have some advantages because it helps workers get what the want and it is a way for workers expressing themselves. One of the advantages of strike is that the managers get enough time to think about ways to raise money to pay the salaries of their workers because of the fear of losing their workers, Employers pay their workers sometimes when the go on strikes.
In my opinion, strike has caused more harm than good around the world I would be talking about my country Nigeria -- the longest strike Nigeria has embarked was for 275 days and this took place in 2020 it affected everyone one way or the other especially the student it has delayed their promotion into the next level and also caused them to be idle and we all know that someone that is idle can cause a lot of harm to the everyone and the society at large.
I think the solution to strike is that the government should be more intentional about paying workers salary and workers should also be restricted to the amount of time they can strike.
