A Rail Strike is a situation where a nation's rail employees begin refusing to work, angering Commuters and reducing the GDP by up to 14%.

The main cause of rail strikes are poorly funded Rail Subsidies, though a poor Average Income and Labour Laws which favor employees can encourage union action too. Increased funding for rail services is the easiest and best way of dealing with this situation, though curtailing some labour laws can help break apart strikes too.
