Civil servants on strike in Norway!

Civil servants never seem to get enough. They have had an increase over the last years of 5%, earning far more than people in the same postion in neighbouring countries. On top of it all it is a bit more than the private sector. The offering from the government is 4% and that is obviously not even close to their demands. The Labour/red-green government has given themselves a problem since management in state owned companies (of which there are far too many) has been granted 18% in raise. So who cares if elderly people only have shower once a month or you have to stay home taking care of your kids since everything is closed. A tearing problem to be sitting on all sides of the table!
