Steve Thornton has spent his career advocating for fair wages, fair practices and fair treatment for all. Sometimes all that advocating has gotten him arrested! Here is yet another photograph of Steve getting arrested at a protest, this one at the Waterbury, Connecticut, Brass Mill mall during a Local 1199 protest to save Waterbury Hospital in 2013:
