    Winot I wholeheartedley agree with your viewpoint

    The eternal tussle - do we deal with the world as we find it or as we would like it to be.

    On the Ritzy dispute. This has been long running. Previous dispute led to negotiations between BECTU and Cineworld/ Picture house. This led to stopping the action on promise of talks at later stage on Living Wage. Now they are refusing.

    It's Cineworld/ Picture house that are finding it to "distasteful" to sit down and talk.

    Living Staff Living Wage - BECTU

    The idea that somehow all parties views and concerns must be considered and given equal gravitus is not dealing with the world as we find it.

    These pay disputes get resolved with a mixture of all parties sitting down and negotiating plus strikes/ public pressure.

    There isnt a level / equal playing field. As Thimble Queen pointed out. The world as it is has unequal power relations. To argue otherwise is seeing the world as we would like it to be.
