In New York City, if you cross the labor unions in any way, they will come and inflate this 15-foot high rat in front of your location. I took this picture last year when the busboys and kitchen workers of Grand Central's Oyster Bar were on strike.
Today I arrived at work to find the same rat in front of my office building. Apparently somebody is doing some office remodeling without unionized construction workers. I'm not sure where I stand on the labor unions issue in general, but I do know that everybody in my office thinks the rat is kind of cute. Maybe the unions should find another tool of intimidation?
