60. The November 30 Strike: Will Britain Shutdown?

On Wednesday, November 30, millions of public sector workers across Britain will walk out of their jobs on what's billed as a "Day of Action".

Triggered by stagnant negotiations over pension reforms, with a backdrop of public sector cuts, unions say they are forced into taking industrial action, to make the government listen to their pleas.

The government says it's irresponsible to strike while negotiations are ongoing.

Some are saying the strikes will damage the British economy at a time when it is most vulnerable, and that Britain will be thrown into chaos.

How much of a disruption will these strikes really be?
