The election campaign in USA: are there similarities with Greece?
Despite the many differences between the two countries, USA and Greece meet in one point, at least. In both countries, occur aspects of the pathology called the patronage system. Clienteles are different and act differently. In Greece, strikes, marches and occupations, not only hit a record but they are also original, to the extent that recently took the form of “warning” strikes.
In the USA, by contrast, strikes are rare. Coincidentally, two days ago, the strike of Elementary School Teachers of Chicago area, came to an end. It was, however, the first in twenty five years, and moreover, ending with a consensus of the two opposing sides.
