Sign The Contract

Dear Editor,

Your husband is on strike, what do you do?

My husband is on strike at Dayton Beach Park. He goes 7 days a week, 10 – 12 hours a day. I work all week and when he gets home he’s too tired to do anything but close his tired eyes.

What do you do when the only day you get to spend with your husband, he is going to walk the line at the strike?

Well I threw on my pants and went with him.

Mike has come home at night exhausted and burnt, but well feed thanks to all the “generous shareholders.” Home cooked food, endless bottles of water and ice. As I sit with the guys and some shareholders I feel a family feeling. Everybody is out watching that they are fed enough and that they don’t need anything. I want each and every one of you to know how much I appreciate the support you have given and will continue giving to these men that are tired, burnt and don’t get to see their families.

These men, after walking the line all day, 7 days a week, go NOT home to their families but to a second job. This strike not only hurts the men financially, it hurts their spirits, and makes them worry 24/7 how are they are going to support their family if this keeps going.

I know they are going to be walking that line as long as it takes and will NEVER give up.

SIGN THE CONTRACT and let the men go back to keeping your homes clean and safe and let them come home to their families that miss them.
