"walkout" has such a better connotation than "strike." I know they're not exactly the same thing but still. walkout is like yeah! power of the people! but strike is like a bunch of people complaining or something.

They probably used to have the same connotation, but after the anti-union media we've been raised in since the 70s, they've done well to smear all the words that were previously used to organize and galvanize the community. They want all these words to be destroyed and/or lose their power.
