Short Post: Demonstration This Morning

While walking to the bus stop this morning, I couldn’t help but notice a very large group of people with flags, banners, and signs walking up the street.  The signs all said, “Wir Sind Es Wert,” which I now know means “We are worth it.”

The group, as it turns out, is a union called Ver.Di.  I’m not entirely sure what they’re demonstrating about, but it was interesting and somewhat random, and I hope that the demonstration doesn’t mean they’re striking, because a union strike would affect the bus that I take every day in frustrating ways.

  1. Yep… strikers. I wasn’t even aware that it was a possibility until I got to the Hbf this morning and there was a notice running that said “Your VAG will not strike” or something to that effect. So not sure if that was planned for here or what was going on. But that would have thrown a serious hitch into my commute as well!
