The Union Is For The People

Sure they are.


The hurricane-ravaged east coast has been receiving north Alabama help, but crews from Huntsville Utilities learned they'll be doing work in Long Island, New York instead of in New Jersey.Crews from Huntsville, as well as Decatur Utilities and Joe Wheeler out of Trinity headed up there 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.

Non Union? You're not wanted... get lost.

Those folks that once lived in Seaside Heights just might have an issue with this decision to refuse help from trained crews with the right equipment - sent in from another State at no cost to them - to help get their electrical power back up and running.

Maybe the next time New Jersey citizens start crying for help, those who stand ready to send help should check and see if they are considered as "acceptable" to New Jersey's union overlords.

Since when can beggars be choosers? When did that rule change?

Man, that sucks. Cities in Oklahoma help each other all the time. We have so many ice storms around here, it's a good thing they do.

I got kicked off a job for being non-union, the guy with me was saying "But I'm in the Roofers Union, roof covers everything!"
We were told not to come back.

New Jersey is run by the mafia and therefore is union-labor only, like most the overpriced Coaster Schtaats.
