The 1980's

The 1980's were a strange time in Britain.

Large sections of the workforce regularly went on strike. Sometimes for better pay and conditions, but most frequently in opposition to management's plans to close down their factories or workplaces - presumably because they were less efficient than other parts of the operation, or were simply not making as much money as they had planned.

So, stoping all production at that location was a great weapon for the strikers to use.

However, the odd thing is that this had actually worked in the past....

Go Figure.
