If you made $1 a day and had decent insurance and your boss said you'd be making 75 cent a day and they were taking away your drug and dental insurance (fake numbers of course) you'd be pissed too.

The facts

The strikes began on Nov. 9, when the company imposed a contract that would cut workers' wages by 8 percent. The Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union (BCTGM) said the contract would also cut benefits by 27 to 32 percent.

There were days when this was a better offer than the choices I faced.
