A year later: Still on strike

No one thought walkout at Bach plant in Elkhart would go this long. Some of them do crossword puzzles. Or play cards. Maybe dominos, if someone has a set. They read newspapers, or a good book. They draw. They sit around talking about what's going on in life. Not much. You know. Same old. These people are sick and tired of this strike but frankly, for a few, it's all they have left, and so they sit out here on a picket line in Elkhart, inside wooden huts that look like sentry posts at the four entrances to the plant where they used to work.
