Submission + - Workers of ALMA telescope on strike due to poor working conditions

An anonymous reader writes: Snipet taken from http://www.dw.de/workers-strike-at-chilean-giant-telescope-alma/a-17040140: "Employees at the world's largest radio telescope have gone on strike after failing to reach agreement over pay and conditions. Workers say they are not sufficiently compensated for isolation and high altitude.". The strike started on Thursday, and the telescope is currently not operating. Although the project's budget is $1.1 billion, an ALMA technician earns less than $2.000 per month. How does this compare with people working at observatories in the U.S., Japan, or the European Union?
