3. It's not that bad here.
Edited on Wed Dec-21-05 01:55 PM by iconoclastNYC
Granted I just had to walk 40 blocks to go to an eye appointment.

These labor union people are fighting for every worker. People have died for the right to strike against employers. I support the TWU.

NYC media is working overdrive to demonize the workers, the TWU, and it's president.
