Sympathy Strike

Josh is a member of the University Professional and Technical Employees (UPTE) Union and today they are participating in a sympathy strike in support of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME).  By wearing the UPTE logo on his hat, Josh is showing his support without actually participating in the strike.  The scientists indicated their support for Josh by writing UPTE on the half-way-day balloons. For more information on the strike you can read an article by The San Diego Union-Tribune here:
