Ok...so have I got this right?

It's not ok for teachers to go on strike because they would shut down a school system and the kids would suffer.
It's not ok for plant workers to go on strike because this would shut down the plant, and the company would lose money.
It's not ok for union workers to go on strike because this would interfere with the business they work for, and money could be lost.
It's not ok for union and public employees to use their strength in numbers to pursue their goals by any type of job action.
Union and public employees do not have the right to interfere with businesses and/or services.

But...

It is ok for the Republicans to go on strike shutting down the government, costing hardships for millions of people.
It is ok for the Republicans to use their strength in numbers to pursue their goals by any and/or all types of job actions.
Republicans have the right to interfere with businesses and/or services.

So have I got this right? Sure seems kind of hypocritical to me, but what do I know? :silly:
