Abstract

In New York's 12-day transit strike early this year, newspaper, TV, and radio coverage focused on the hardships endured by millions of New Yorkers and the generally patient and ingenious good humor with which they adjusted to the crisis. These were the victims, without doubt. The late Michael J. Quill, Transport Workers Union president, served as roguish villain, at least until the collapse that hospitalized him; and behind him stood the thousands of strikers who were castigated by everyone from the man in the street to the President of the United States.
