Workers of the World, Unite: Spanish Air Traffic Controllers Edition

From IBEX Salad:
The base wage of the air traffic controllers whose wildcat strike closed down Spain's airspace this weekend is 200,000 euros per year.

Nothing to lose but their chains, we suppose.

From The Hindu on Saturday:
300,000 stranded as Spanish air controllers stay home

Spain's unemployment rate is the highest in Europe although it did dip below 20% in October.
