    Walking the picket line | Sikorsky strikers settle in - By ROB VARNON, The Connecticut Post
    'We've worked a lifetime to earn health care,' he said. Sikorsky managers 'need to be reminded they operate in America, not China.'

    Peter Ronai, a clinical exercise physiologist and manager of community health for Ahlbin Rehabilitation Centers of Bridgeport Hospital, said physically demanding work takes a toll on the human body. He would not discuss Sikorsky in particular, but said the center has treated some of its workers.

    Some factory workers, nurses, auto mechanics and carpenters can experience problems with joints, Ronai said, because constant motion and rubbing inside joints wears them out.
