You may have missed this, maybe the US media kept it quiet, who knows...but the Japanese were protesting earlier this year
Instead of forming a picket line, protesting bus drivers in the Japanese city of Okayama have been completing their routes – but not taking fares from passengers.
The dispute between workers and the Ryobi bus company reportedly began after a rival bus service launched in April, offering cheaper fares. Worried drivers called for more job security, according to Japanese media. When that wasn’t agreed, they covered the ticket machines on buses and refused to take fares from passengers.
In a nutshell Japanese bus drivers kept Japan on time, and only cost the bus company money by adding fuel cost on top of lost fares.
Well done Japan, well done...rest of the world this is how you protest
