Two Million Workers Strike in Britain Over Pension Funds

London schools are closed, hospitals are handling emergency care only, and even passport agents have gone on strike in London today - Nov. 30, 2011. The massive strike by 33 public sector unions is a public announcement that the pension funds are sustainable and should not be cut in order to pay for bank bailouts.

Two million public workers are protesting the government's decision to extend retirement to age 68, double the employee's contribution and lower monthly retirement checks.
