We stumbled upon this political-labor protest this morning outside the Grand Street subway station in Chinatown while on our way to a meeting at our offices uptown. What really struck us was the style of the the placards and signs, especially the hand-drawn illustrations depicting restaurant delivery men on their bicycles.
