A group of “Occupy Wall Street” protesters on Tuesday marched to Sotheby’s locales in Manhattan to show their support for unionized art handlers who are locked in a three-months-long contract dispute with the auction house. Sotheby’s wants the workers to accept wage cuts, even though the company reportedly sold $3 billion worth of art in the first half of this year alone.
