Striking employees at the Bank of England are wearing comical masks depicting governor Mark Carney as they picket outside the institution demanding better pay. The 3-day strike, bank’s 1st in over 50 years comes after workers failed to reach a deal that would allow them to keep pace with inflation, which is now 2.6%. The bank issued a statement which said it had been in talks with the union.
