Yes a week of Royal Mail Strikes by Royal Mail in UK to hit the public where it hurts. Wild Cat Strikes they call them effecting Cards and Christmas Presents by the Millions. I guess Santa,is going to be running late this year.BB

Not quite correct. The strikes are by Post Office staff not Royal Mail. Deliveries of mail will not be affected.
It should also be noted that acceptance of employment in a position which deals with the public does not automatically bind one into slavery.

Rest? Retirement simply stops employment interfering with the hobbies.
