Surely the question of whether Cathay will even exist in its current form in 12 months is rather more pressing than a few more dollars? I'd give it a 50/50 chance of being a Chinese state owned enterprise within the next 12 months. And good luck trying to organise industrial action then!

It already is a Chinese state owned enterprise. At least for any intensive purposes. That happened when Rupert left (and if it's true he did so in the manner reported my hat's off to him as being a person of honor and integrity).

The time to strike has probably passed. The window of opportunity for that was with the introduction of POS 18.

Then again, a general strike in HKG might be a way for the protesters to add teeth to their argument and position--WITHOUT having to have confrontations that turn violent. One of the better ways to starve the beast of Communism or Statism (and all its variants) is not to allow the fruit of YOUR labor be used against you by THEM. THEY have no inherent right to YOUR work, talent, or time. Ayn Rand was spot on in this concept -- unfortunately communism can creep rather than happening all of a sudden (as hers did) so sometimes cultures get suckered in then wonder how they got where they are.

The rejection of COS16 was the dumbest decision of all times.

Maybe the rejection of Pos18 ,which included a guarantee of 10 years Arapa, could top that one day.

The imminent crisis will tell.
