over the last few weeks members of shipping unions went on strike to generally get better wages and treatment.
one of the reasons the strike happened was because some clerk jobs were to be eliminated because of the electronic streamlining of data. if these clerks were to keep their jobs, their jobs would be essentially to read all incoming electronic data and type it into the database.
where do you stand? should these workers keep their jobs at the cost of some efficiency, or should these jobs be eliminated and all electronic data be sent directly to the databases?
