Strikebreaker is a person employed in the place of one who has left employment because of a strike or concerted work stoppage on the part of a number of workers due to disagreement over wages, working conditions or some particular action or actions of an employer. A strikebreaker differs from a scab in that he may be paid premium wages and is usually hired merely for the duration of a strike rather than for the normal duration of the job.[1]
