Default NYC transit strike

Bloomberg today said that the transit workers' strike was crippling the city's economy (which is true), and blamed the union for (I'm paraphrasing here) stealing productivity from the city's people.

Hey Bloomberg, do you think the people of NYC are *entitled* to the labor of the transit union? That they should be forced to work?

The *real* blame, of course, lies with government. Government decided to put all the eggs in one basket and have a monopoly transit system. By eliminating any alternatives, the city put itself into a position to be blackmailed by the transit workers.
