Funny Goverment in Iceland

Hi all.
And today ,a majority of nurses in the Icelandic hospital system, after trying to negotiate with the goverment,quit and left the hospital.
And the negotiation was not about wages or money.
No, the goverment wanted to change the working hours,make them work more ,and pay less.

The goverment in Iceland,just does not want to talk to anybody, when it is having problems.
Inflation is going up,loans are getting higher,and the goverment and the President,say everthing is good.

Gas is now ,more than 8 dollars a gallon.
Here you can see the news on CNN ,and there is a protest ,and police fighting ,and the President says everything is ok.
