These people don't seem to understand the realities of our society. If one section demands benefits by way of pay or conditions, which costs outweigh the value contribution they bring to that society, at some point they bring the whole system down. This collapse will initially only hurt those who need their services, but the compound effect of that will overtime bring about their own downfall. That's the pendulum of economics; it will swing against them and hurt their members. One needs to understand, you can't have money for nothing, it must be earned and no one "deserves" more than the value they contribute to the economy.
