#OCCUPYWALLST | Sotheby’s

A group of Occupy Wall Street protestors joined union workers outside Sotheby’s auction house on Thursday, October 20th. Unionized art handlers have been in a 3 month long labor dispute with the auction house. Sotheby’s wants the workers to accept wage cuts, even though the company sold $3 billion worth of art in the first half of this year and gave their CEO a 125% raise from last year. Bill Ruprecht, the Sotheby’s CEO, now makes $60,000 — A DAY.
