I was surprised to learn that in the United States, there is no constitutional right to strike. On the other hand, there is a constitutional right to picket (freedom of speech). In any event, labor disputes and strikes are part and parcel of any open society. Most strikes, like the one below, are uneventful. This afternoon, I stopped to photograph this strike in Fort Worth, Texas. There were, maybe, a couple dozen picketers, and with each green light they crossed the street holding aloft their signs. Once they arrived at the other side, they turned around and waited, ever so politely, for the next green light. A few gave a half-hearted chant about their grievance. I will leave it to wiser minds than mine to judge the merits of their cause.
