Chicago City Workers-Chicago City Heroes
During this brutal freeze, many of Chicago's citizens had no water. Still many people have no water due to rich landlords that forget to make sure their tenants have working plumbing. Some landlords have no heat in the basement and than the pipes froze. While taking a break from thawing frozen pipes in a medical center, three Chicago employees took the time to help a man get his wheelchair over the curb. Than Archie High shoveled the walk so the man could attend to his personal business at the Doctor's office. All three Chicago City Workers are heroes and an example of what Chicago will miss when services are privatized. Photo by Patrick McDonough.
