    Is strike necessary when there is no agreement reached between management and workers?

    When management and workers fail to reach an agreement, workers go on strike to prove their point. Is this a necessary thing to do or it just compromising service, workers pay and the economy in the long run?

    It is a unnecessary when the management do not care about workers demand at all. On the other hand too much strike for every single demand is not good either. So it depends on the situation.

    It depends on the situation. It should be up to the workers' union to decide in consultation with all members what action should be taken. Too much striking cannot lead to a good outcome for anyone; it could force the employer to close and then everybody loses out. This needs to be carefully considered from all stake-holders point of view so a positive outcome for everyone involved can be reached.

    The right to strike was an important factor in American history. In reality it holds as much meaning today as it did for our ancestors. When companies dictate work conditions and pay this is never a good thing. Employees need a way to change working conditions as well as the right to be paid a living wage.

    The middle class as we know it was created because of strikes. Before this there were three ways to survive comfortably. Choices were be the owner of a large business, a small company which served a need or want of the rich, or live on a farm which provided all the necessities of life.

    Prevailing wage in many states made it possible for people to survive. In most cases this was set after a strike. Prevailing wage is often much higher then minimum wage.

    In years past medical benefits were something to strike over. In the United States in those days Medical insurance was a luxury many couldn't afford. A major medical problem could bankrupt a family. If some level of insurance was furnished by the companies people worked for they had a fighting chance.
