Day 121 – The striking members are still on the line standing strong. I have been seeing more and more children on the line lately, the reason is the striking members don’t have child care. When Helen cut the benefits it also included Child Care funds along with many other finds like education, retirement, etc.
The usual cars parking on the street and sidewalk is still happening. There were some comments about this being boring already, I agree! I am bored with reporting this but it seems like the nursing home employees think that it is fine to park where ever they like. I had recently thanked the Captain of the 50th for coming here and making the nursing home move their vehicles behind their property line. It was a short lived thanks as they are still parking however and where ever they like and the police on scene are not doing anything about it.
Here you can see another car parked right in the no parking zone with the “Doctor on Call” paper in the windshield.
Funny thing here is the registration tag has expired and still this car has not received a ticket.
What is up here? If you remember I received a ticket for parking on the street (where I live) because of the strike even though there where no signs posted at that time. I am still fighting that ticket and was told by the Captain that someone in the precinct would look into it but I have not heard back from anyone.
You can see another car flaunting the lawlessness by parking right on the sidewalk, I guess if you have DDS plates you can do whatever you like?!
Lastly today, there were two men from the New York State Workers Compensation Fraud Investigation Unit that came and interviewed many members on the strike line and then allegedly went inside the nursing home to serve a subpoena to Helen, I did not get the full details but according to some reports it is alleged that the nursing home has not paid Workers Compensation premiums for many of its members.
Till tomorrow, STAND STRONG!
