Hong Kong Protesters Cause Airport Shutdown PDF Print E-mail

They’re mad as hell at those Commie bosses, so they disrupt one of the world’s busiest airports. Their actions will hurt many thousands of innocent travelers, but they’ll get lots of publicity. The current Hong Kong situation reminds me of childhood days in Philadelphia.

Many years ago at mid-December almost annually, city transportation workers demanded more pay. If they didn’t get it, they threatened to shut down the system during Christmas season. Of course, it didn’t affect their overpaid bosses, but they hurt city families and retailers. No buses, streetcars nor subways would be running at the busiest time of year.

Of course, all workers deserve fair pay and/or fair working conditions by their overpaid business and political bosses. But if they don’t get what they demand, is it right to deliberately hurt innocent people, such as thousands of Hong Kong airline passengers?
