Underground workers in London, England were on strike again Monday, shutting down all of the lines of the London subway.
Union members staged the 24-hour strike in protest over 800 planned job cuts.
"It is very annoying," said banker Ben Gilbert, 34, whose normal 35-minute travel time stretched to an hour on Monday. "Everyone knows the strikes cause absolute chaos. They shouldn't really be allowed to do it."
Officials said less staff is needed because more and more commuters are using an automated system.
London Mayor Boris Johnson has called the strike a "political attack" on the government. However, union workers have planned two more strikes in November, if an agreement cannot be reached.
Meanwhile in France, thousands continue to protest against the government's plan to raise the retirement age from 60 to 62.
That bill is expected to pass the French Senate on Tuesday, but union members and left-wing opposition warn of more action if the government doesn't listen to them.
