Driving Examiners Strike Because of the New Test

Massive disruption has been cause for learner drivers about to take their tests.
Driving examiners went on strike because they will have to work longer for no more money.
The longer hours are a result of the new driving tests which take into account the use of sat-navs and other changes.
The driving examiners are on a 48 hour strike and many tests have had to be cancelled.
If the examiners are striking because it has a negative effect on their lives then I support them.

I believe most people managed to take their tests on the days of the so called strike.
I am on the side of the examiners if more are being demanded from them for no increase in wages.

Its not fair that any worker should be asked to work harder or longer for the same money.
Hopefully they will resolve this but not add any more costs to the driving test.

You made a thread about getting hyped up and test driving this thing. All I see are pictures. No feedback about a test drive?
