Art Handlers' Protests At Sotheby's - Is Sotheby's Bad for Art?

Art handlers at Sotheby's have been protesting outside the Upper Eastside auction house even before the Occupy Wall Street movement made noise in Lower Manhattan. The art handlers have been locked out of their jobs for more than three months. While Sotheby's earned record profits last year, it wants to replace these longtime professionals with inexperiened, outsourced workers. The long-running protests aim to educate the company's clients about their plight. Sotheby's is located at 1334 York Avenue between 71st and 72nd Streets.
