Specs/Dance Captain (March 2012 - January 2013)
"Listen fellas. I know somebody put yous up to this. They probably payin’ you some extra money too. Yeah? WELL IT AIN’T RIGHT! Pulitzer thinks we are gutter rats, with no respect for nothin’, includin’ each other. Is that who we are? Yeah, we stab each other in the back, that’s who we are. Yeah, but if we stand together, we change the whole game. And it ain’t just about us. All across this city there are boys and girls who oughtta be out playin’, or goin’ to school, and instead they are slavin’ to support themselves! And their folks! There ain’t no crime in bein’ poor, and neither one of us complains if the work we do is hard, huh? All we ask is a square deal. So kids, for the sake of every sweatshop, factory and slaughterhouse in this town, I beg you, throw down your papers and join the strike.”
