i've got some questions about rocco's union troubles, yusef, and destruction for beginners.
First off, do we have any proof that rocco's union problems in practice swing and bang bang are related to niko's destruction for beginners mission or is it just an assumption?
If so, I'm a bit confused.
If I'm understanding correctly in Destruction for Beginners Yusef is being blackmailed by an unknown mafia family(with a union front). When Yusef refuses to pay they go on strike. After Niko 'takes care of them' Yusef decides to build a monument in their honor and close the site down for a few days before opening it back up and presumably paying the blackmail money.
Now with Rocco we know his beef is with union leaders who are backed by the meccinas(spelling?). If Rocco is part of the Ancellottis I guess I don't understand his stake. Is he working with Yusef?(this seems unlikely).
If Rocco's union problems are unrelated to Yusef's construction site it makes sense not to explain what they are. We can look at 'bang, bang' as ending his union trouble and that's that. It may not be great storytelling, but it's a plot line that begins and ends in tbogt.
However, if they are indeed all the part of the same picture I'm wondering why Rocco(a mobster) is pissed that other mobsters are striking at yusef's site. Is Rocco bidding for the work? Is Rocco somehow making money off Yusef not being blackmailed?
...maybe I'm just missing something obvious...any thoughts>?
