It looks like the grocery workers' strike is ending with a wimper instead of a bang.

The grocery workers say they can't make ends meet on $20 to $25 a day in strike pay. That's an 84% drop in income since the work stoppage started. Some union members have crossed picket lines and returned to their own jobs. Others have taken part time or full time work elsewhere.

One checker says that their strike pay was slashed in half after Christmas. Many lost their health benefits at the start of the new year. Those two developments forced people to give up and move on with their lives.

We may hear more about this story when the union and the stores reach an official agreement, but the strike's really been over for weeks.
