On August 3, 1981, nearly 13,000 workers of PATCO or Professional Air Traffic Controllers Organization went on strike to protest for an increase in their wages and a reduction of their workweek. When this came to President Raegan's knowledge, workers were ordered to report within 48 hours to explain because a strike by government unions was against the law. But the workers stood firm and did not come. As a result, on August 5, 1983, President Raegan fired 11,345 strikers and banned them from working in any government agency for the rest of their lives.
