Gov. Quinn visits Cat picket line, donates $10,000 to strike fund

Gov. Pat Quinn gave money and moral support, but no sign he could do anything to help striking Caterpillar workers get back to work when he visited the picket line Friday.

Quinn said his reason for coming to the picket line was to show support for the workers. In addition to offering a message of hope, he gave a $10,000 donation from his “Taxpayers for Quinn” campaign fund to the Machinists’ strike fund.

Despite some urging from some strikers that Quinn get involved on their side, they did not seem to expect him to take that stand during the visit.
