Strike has always been a method used by the employees to get their demands fulfilled. Sometimes there is no choice but the only way to get the solution. At various times they have helped to improve the working & economic conditions of labourers. It can be a very effective tool to move some of benefits to the working class which otherwise rich people don't allow. If welfare of the common people be the aim, strike can work as a force of progress. But yes, strike should always be the last resort as it can cause inconvenience to many people.

Strike is nothing but voice of masses.. Ye it may not be the most apt solution for any problem but other solutions are not very effective in our country...Government is not able to control inflation in economy therefore it is becoming very difficult for people to fulfill there basic need which is food, cloth and shelter...Prices of Grocery and Vegetables is inflating every quarter.. Petrol and diesel is inflating every month and salary hike of employee's is negligible.. our labor laws are obsolete and can not provide protection against this inflation monster.

People have no other choice but to strike...because government is deaf and blind we have politicians not leaders in our country. They are only concerned about their personal benefit and are least bother about concern of masses.. therefore I strongly support labor unions going on strike and raising voice.

Strikes are one of the ways to raise one's voice and put their concerns in front of authorities.. but it is good only when done in a disciplined way without effecting the public property and their livelihood.. but in India strikes are nothing but a means for political parties to fulfill their political ends.

Though it is a weapon...If there are no strikes the employer would have a upper hand on the employees and treat them as slaves and this can be overcome only by such hard practices.

Strikes are also conducted in other countries but the type is not the same as we see in INDIA. Protests are conducted in a lot peaceful manner and in a disciplined ways. The shut down of shops or means of communications are not disturbed to a great extent. In some countries people on strike tie a band on their arms and put their concerns peacefully, NOT BY BURNING COMMON PEOPLE'S CARS..
