  This is what you would have seen driving past the Cottonwood Health Care Center during the candlelight vigil.

  Bill Watson, chief shop steward at Mercy General Hospital, Sacramento, CA, and member of Local 250, speaking to the crowd. . He and other coworkers present could not help but remember that we had been ready to go on strike several months ago when our contract bargaining stalled. We got our contract without striking, but we understood how events could take this unfortunate turn, and were glad to be in solidarity with these nursing home employees.


 
  Chris, from ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now), expressed ACORN's support for the employees at Cottonwood.
