Barely Caught the Mayor's Press Conference

I only saw a tiny sliver, I'm afraid, but he sounded a feistier than this morning when it was about disappointment and coping. I saw him reminding people that the TWU members are unlike many workers who don't get paid if they can't get to work, or if the business can't open, or if the customers don't come. Good point.

The one I've been trying to make all along is that the TWU members aren't like everybody else at all in their working conditions or standards, and to ask for people to support their rights not to adapt with the times the way other workers have done isn't about dignity, it's patently unfair.
