    I agree with this but you must recongnize those NJ UNION members have priorities RIGHT NOW. Like protecting their families...the out of staters do not have this obligation related to the storm. These out of staters were sent merely to 'get over the hump' of energizing the customers. Surely you would agree there will be PLENTY of electrical work for the NJ UNION members after the out of staters leave...right?

    But these out of staters are not being paid collectively...this is common in mutual aid agreements between utility providers.

    I thought helping people was a priority for Democrats? Obama said it was. Now we have people making excuses for the union. Sick stuff.

    They can easily get in-state union guys to do the work. The workers who reside in the state should get the work IMO.

    More of your irrelevent bs...hiring NJerseyans first does not hurt the devestated...it helps them with faster response and helps the state recover by hiring thier own who will pay TAXS on it

    How is it "at the expense of the people?" They will still get help.

    The workers came there to help people. Isn't that what Obama said....wave all the red tape and get to work. Isn't it?

    Inflammatory emotional rhetoric is not helping. People are hurting and need help.

    The non-union crews were there...with their gear...ready to be put to work. But you two would rather the citizens wait till new hires can be processed, trained and then, at some point in time, put to work. Meanwhile, a whole lot of people are trying to survive the cold and dark.

    I guess y'all care more about unions than people.
