Fiat workers strike after Ronaldo deal

Cristiano Ronaldo's Juventus switch has led to Fiat workers going on strike for two days to protest the 105-million-euro deal.

The car manufacturer will contribute funds towards the Portuguese superstar's staggering wages -- expected to be around 500,000 pounds per week. And workers in their Melfi plant are disgusted -- claiming they had been forced to cut costs for years and have planned a two-day strike starting from July 15.

A Union of Base Unions of the Fca di Melfi statement read: "Is this all right? Is it normal for a single person to earn millions and thousands of families do not [make enough to] reach the middle of the month? We are all dependent on the same master. This unequal treatment cannot and should not be accepted."
