Last night during the AFL-CIO-hosted Democratic candidates forum in Chicago audience members were given the chance to ask pressing questions. None were more pressing than Steve Skvara’s. Skvara, from Indiana, worked at LTV Steel for 34 years before he was forced to retire due to a disability. Two years later LTV went belly up and Skvara lost his pension.
