'Innocent' have a right to strike

David Cameron says that public servants are "wrong" to take industrial action.

This same political leader stated that the former Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, and the Labour Government must accept a major share of the responsibility for this country's financial woes.

Cameron has also failed, to curtail the excesses of the financial industry. Many people taking industrial action are well-paid, while others are low-income earners.

Nevertheless, they have undertaken their work in good faith and paid their taxes.

Is there not something morally reprehensible about these 'innocent' people having to pay the price for incompetent politicians and bankers?
