United Kingdom - Junior doctors on strike - January 31, 2016

Junior doctors went on strike on 12 January for the first time since 1975. The Junior Doctors' Strike walked out on that date, with medics picketing outside hospitals. They are not complaining about their long hours or their modest pay cheques. They were demonstrating against Tory plans to force more of them to work at the weekends and simultaneously cut their bonus for working unsociable shifts, effectively slashing their pay.
