The responsible people at our city's paper of record urge striking recycling/garbage haulers to be "reasonable":

They took no pay cuts during the recession. They have unusual job security. With all that, they have a duty to be reasonable.

That's the problem with America, I guess: Too much job security and not enough pay cuts. Hell, we'll never get our nation working again until more working class Americans take responsibility for causing the Great Recession. Or something.
