Portrait of a Picket Line, in Hell's Kitchen

Bobby Steel, NYC
Photo by myself on Ninth Avenue, around 37th Street.

Bobby Steel, above, blew his whistle rhythmically at a small protest. A building was going up behind them, employing only non-union workers.

A very small group of construction workers protested near the restaurant where we lunched, Friday. The leader of the group was curious about my camera, and when I found out he was part of a picket line, I asked whether I could take a photograph.

Whether union or non-union workers are used on a project often depends on the size of a project. Smaller projects and renovations typically don't have such requirements.
