We've had a lot of comments from our readers today about the Tube strikes. As you might expect, it has been a highly divisive issue. While the majority of tweets and comments posted have been in support of the strikes, a substantial minority have not. A selection of our favourites are gathered below.
@IndyVoices Weekends, sick pay, mat leave etc thanks to Unions. Without them, we're passengers in employers'/Tories' race to the bottom.— Matthew Harrison (@soapboxjury) August 6, 2015
@IndyVoices treat workers with decency,respect,decent pay and you won't have strikes.. Treat people like cattle,they will strike— Marquis of New Town (@CutbackMark) August 6, 2015
@IndyVoices Strikes are the very reason why tube drivers are paid good wages. That's aside from the fact that today's strike is not over pay— spider jerusalem (@tom_unism) August 6, 2015
@IndyVoices people moaning about the tube strikes need to realise the state of public transport outside London - they are very lucky.— Jess (@Jess_Munro) August 6, 2015
