Will County employees to remain on strike through Thanksgiving

About 1,000 Will County employees will remain on strike through the Thanksgiving holiday.

They walked off the job nine days ago for higher pay and more affordable health care.

Union reps say they wanted to negotiate through the weekend but county leaders refused.

County officials say they met with the union for 10 hours on Monday, but the union is not working toward a resolution. So they scheduled another meeting for next week.

    In the 20 years I lived in Florida, I never once saw or heard of employees on strike or Unions holding local governments hostage. Now that I moved up North, it seems like it happens everyday. There are plenty of unemployed Americans who would take their jobs in a second.

    If anyone tried to do this in Florida, they would all be fired immediately. Not happy with your job? Then go find another one.
