I agree…“hostages” …is the word I hear most. To the outside, it seems so unfair that millions of people will suffer consequences for one person’s determination to have what he believes is the solution to a non existent problem. We have had the discussion that maybe it is more about a promise to one of the colleagues that their company (or his own) would get the contract.
EDIT: Maybe TN could flag all of the employees and trickling businesses it is affecting and that will have some affect on the general public to support a “back to work legislation” (not sure if that is what it is there…would be here).
And to stay on topic…a rock wall?
