New York On Strike

Talking last night to a small restaurant owner was a sad experiences as he told of all the loses in parties and customers he was sustaining after just one day of the transit strike. My brother is also in that business but fortunately at this time of year they do their catering out to offices, colleges, etc. Yet my sympathies are with the workers who have very difficult lives, working down in the tunnels of NY. It is especially outrageous that a multi-billionaire mayor is calling them criminals for striking. People are walking and coping but it is estimated that area business is down 40 million per day at the height of the season. Tragic all around.
