SEIU Takes Rally Under Cover

So you've got a rally scheduled, but it's raining. Quick, what do you do? Apparently if you're the SEIU you duck under the overhang at Macy's Plaza.

I can't figure out what they're rallying about (the signs talk about security), but this smallish crowd from the union is definitely making enough noise to be loud up here on the 19th floor. We kept peering out the windows, trying to figure out what was up, but couldn't see them. Turns out that was because they were all packed up against the building.

Update (a few minutes later): Googling the sign slogan brought me to Stand for Security, an SEIU effort to unionize security guards.
