Showdown between union leader and Prime Minister

Jacob Gelt DekkerThe showdown between an old union leader and the 7th Prime Minister of Curacao finished up in a strike and a draw. The strike will hurt the already ailing economy of Curacao even more, and the union leader showed the world that he is antiquated with his ideology of Castro-Chavismo communism. Demanding salary increases in a shrinking economy, yes shrinking again for the 8th year in a row, is equal to self-mutilation and suicide. But now you know the new reality; the Prime Minister is very weak and the union leader somewhat demented.
