Angela Anello has worked in funeral homes in Chicago for 25 years. Anello, right, loves helping people through times of loss, and is compensated $95,000 a year for the work. At age 47, she was planning on retiring in 13 years, thanks to a robust pension plan.

But now, along with 35 funeral directors and 23 drivers represented by Teamsters Local 727, Anello is on strike.
