Chicago Department of Water Management Payroll Problem
Enjoy this picture taken very late at night on the South Side of Chicago. Chicago Department of Water Management employees worked around the clock to make sure vital city services were supplied. This picture reminded me of a scene from "Escape from New York". That night was brutally cold but Chicago's Union Employees worked throughout the night. The acting foreman on the job that night was Nate Foggs, a licenced plumber. I shot this picture with no flash. Today was a bad day as many of the workers that braved this bitter cold did not receive the proper overtime two pay periods running. Some men like Robert Woodridge, a Reverend, was very upset. My pay was short but not too bad, they watch me pretty close. Photo by Patrick McDonough.
