Their emergency strike, started on Tuesday morning and already extended three days, was renewed "until Monday night 18 October at 8 pm". The strike of urgent interventions launched on Tuesday by two ambulance federations has been renewed until Monday by its organizers, who deplore their mass requisition and the lack of listening of the government and warn that their movement could intensify next week. The ambulancers keep the foot on the brake.

The unions and the workers are all the more reassembled that their employers have made significant turnover during the health crisis when they had to work even more to ensure the continuity of services.

If employees do not hesitate to go on strike, it is because they are in a position with a market where millions of jobs are to be filled and where employers have trouble recruiting.

For some, the health crisis has also served as awareness. A recent study shows that Americans no longer hesitate to resign if their current work does not offer them the quality of life it dreams.
