Default Strike in Martinique Ends

NEW YORK, NY – March 13, 2009 –Madeleine de Grandmaison, chairwoman of the Martinique Tourism Authority, issued the following statement today celebrating the official resolution of a general strike in effect on the island over the past few weeks:
“It gives me great pleasure to confirm the official end to the general strike in Martinique. The island’s shops and schools have re-opened, and life for the general population is quickly returning back to normal."

This has been a real mess for a lot of people though the reports stress that the tourism sector wasn't harmed through cooperation of the unions, hotels, taxis and airport personnel.

When I dream up a better job, I'm going to take it. In the meantime, the research continues.
