Rock on. The sooner we reward the really useful people in society rather than the people who just want control/money/fame/etc, the better. The depressing thing about all this is that there are probably plenty of people (not all of whom are uninvolved in coming to a negotiation) who see "Striking = Slacking". Bollocks to them. Taking cash away from those who are already under-appreciated is not a good way of controlling a FUBAR economy.
