Thematic Photographic: Got the Blues



You're probably wondering why I posted this.... no, it's not the threatening blue sky in the distance... it's because of that blue thing they've halted building for the time being. It is what is to be Dofasco's new galvanized department. Just like Stelco, or rather, US Steel's galvanized Z-Line Department... where my hubby works. My fear is when they finally get it built, because they have no union, companies like Honda will jump ship to the new department and my man will be out of a job. It happened when US Steel was having issues with their union last year and locked the workers out, and it is a fear for the future the closer Dofasco gets to finishing this one. Thankfully someone is on our side, and magically Dofasco has halted production for the time being... money or some other issue, it's unclear but welcome. It may bring jobs for some, but it will take away jobs for others.... I just know it!

It's an ominous sky.

The story behind it hopefully will be brighter, but it is an amazing shot without the back story! Good luck!
