Recently, there have been some rumblings that healthcare workers in Malaysia are going to go on strike to demand better wages and fairer working conditions. We hear about strikes from across the globe, as well. For example, rail workers in the US were about to go on strike recently until President Joe Biden signed a bill to block it. In 2020-2021, farmers in India went on strike for weeks against a law that would put farmers at the mercy of corporations.
But what exactly are strikes? We discuss with Arveent Kathirtchelvan, Youth Chief, Parti Sosialis Malaysia (PSM).
