Carina, 9, and her mother Gloria Herrera have been walking the picket line at Book Covers Inc. in Chicago since early June. The workers, members of United Steelworkers Local 1216, were forced out by company demands for outrageous retirement and health care cuts in bargaining for a new contract. This picture was taken during a support picket at the plant by Steelworkers, retirees, Teamsters, Jobs with Justice and others, July 14. Asked if being on the picket line was “kinda fun,” Carina replied, “No.” But she said she would hold out with her mother on the line one day longer than the company.
