Pasta Strike

The cost of pasta in Italy is rising, and consumers are pissed. (Guardian)

Italian consumer groups have called a one-day strike against buying pasta in protest at the increasing costs that have seen its price rise by almost 20%.

The groups are angry that, while the price of ingredients such as wheat is rising in the shops, the earnings of the farmers who produce them remain flat.
