Health Insurance / Picket Lines
I crossed a picket line today, repeatedly. Iím not feeling ashamed enough; I come from a union family and there was a time when I wouldnít cross. Security guards are on strike because they canít afford to buy the health insurance coverage "offered" to them. Not sure how many buildings are affected; but if no one crossed, it could shut down the financial district. Upon approaching the building, of course I saw the pickets, many of whom I know well. It was so odd because they greeted me pleasantly. I apologized to the head of security and said I'm "with" them; he said he had to slip in the back door, heís management.
