On the strike line

6.9.10 - Mary and I walked the graveyard shift (well, 11:30pm-2:30am) at the strike line in front of North Memorial. I usually go to bed around 3am anyway, so I decided to show my support and protest with her. By now, we all know that the strike is over and the nurses voted to not strike again, so with nurses back at work I finally feel safe to go to the ER - if only I had health insurance...

"We are the union. The mighty mighty union. Fighting for justice. Fighting for respect. Fighting for our healthcare. Fighting for our pensions.." -A different version of the above chant that I used to shout in NYC for UNITE HERE.
