Colombia: Judiciary power strike not having an impact

Colombian blogger Jaime Ruiz posts in Atrabilioso [es] how the Judiciary power employee strike hasn't really affected the country, to the extent that the President has told them that they can continue the strike until the end of his mandate if they wish. Ruiz criticizes them stating that their only function seems to see how they can earn more money, while those workers who keep the country running smoothly doing hand labour still have to support themselves on their low salaries.
