Nick Sobotka

Played by Pablo Schreiber

A stevedore in Local 47, Nick is Sobotka's nephew. He lives in the basement of his mother's house, so overnight visits from his girlfriend Aimee have to be kept secret — even though they have a daughter, Ashley, together. He wants to move out, get a nice home and set up a good life for his family — but money is tight and "hours" on the dock are few and far between.
