Default Re: NYC transit strike

Strikes can't occur against private businesses?

Of course they can. In a unmonopolized market, though, a strike against a single business can't cripple the entire city. Further, the threat of a competitor snatching up marketshare while the stiking workers shut the company down gives management huge incentives to get the strike overwith (and the threat that the employer won't be able to recover if the strike lasts too long gives the workers huge incentives to get to agreement as well).
