Anyway, the air traffic controllers strike in Spain is a hell of a story that, surprisingly, isn’t getting the in-depth examination that it should be.
The story behind the story is that Sr. Zapatero has enacted a congressional law that put the striking civilian air traffic controllers under military command. Under this law, any civilian air traffic controller who does not report for duty could be sentenced to two years’ imprisonment.
