More than three million embattled British nurses and other public emplyees will be on strike November 30 to protest attacks by the British government on pensions and retirement security.
Like their U.S. counterparts, British officials want to slash public worker pensions to cut public deficits - even though, like Social Security in the U.S., British pension funds are financially sound.
As the 19 unions, representing nurses, other healthcare workers, teachers, and other public employees say, the government position is "pay more, work more, get less."
