    Thanks for posting this. I am a parent of a child at Spruce Street. The protest is obnoxious. It’s beyond frustrating the city can’t do anything about it. It’s like the union workers get a free pass to be thugs. I can’t get Margaret Chin or her deputies to call me back about this and 311 is useless. I thought free speech was free until it infringed on others?

    Chris – I'm a union carpenter. How exactly are my brothers and sisters and I "thugs"? Because we're exercising our democratic right to protest against contractors that underpay our non union fellow tradesmen? That sounds more like "altruism" to me – because we're standing up on behalf of others less fortunate for ourselves. Dude, we live in a DEMOCRACY and we have the right to protest.

    Keep up the load protest my fellow union brothers & sisters. I live across the street & work midnight shift. And am proud you are there. Don’t listen to these fools complaining. These were same idiots, who had no problem with Occupy Wall St. That was ok ? But hard working people looking for a fair shake are ” thugs”. They should take kids down & explain to them what is going on. This way maybe, just maybe. We have a shot in future!
