Why Unions Suck--posted by Tony Garcia on 11/02/2012
After a storm that caused so much devastation that New York and New Jersey ask the fed to pick up 100% of the cost of cleanup, the state of New Jersey has the gall to be a choosy beggar about the help they get.
Crews from Huntsville, as well as Decatur Utilities and Joe Wheeler out of Trinity headed up [to the northeast] this week, but Derrick Moore, one of the Decatur workers, said they were told by crews in New Jersey that they can't do any work there since they're not union employees.My hope for Karmic Retribution is that New Jersey's clean up goes so slowly and badly that they long for the days when Newark was not the shining example of the best of New Jersey. I mean, can you imagine a state that is so messed up that Newark is the star of the state?
The crews that are in Roanoke, Virginia say they are just watching and waiting even though they originally received a call asking for help from Seaside Heights, New Jersey.
The crews were told to stand down. In fact, Moore said the crew from Trinity is already headed back home.
