A nationwide public transportation strike in Italy has halted buses, subways and ferries and forced commuters to scramble to get to work.
There was chaos and heavy traffic in Rome and major Italian cities on Wednesday after a 24-hour public transportation strike once again paralyzed commuters, travelers and tourists in the Italian capital, the Associated Press reported.
The walkout was called by unions in a show of protest to proposed cuts in funding for public transport in the government's austerity budget.'
