    I guess y'all care more about unions than people.
    That's a laugh. There are more than enough "trained" people that already exist in NJ that could handle the work. You are jumping to silly conclusions.

    I care about giving the people who live in those communities the opportunity for the work FIRST. A lot of people are DYING for a job and work and money.

    This is a perfect example of how sick the left is. They demand we recognize that everything they do is to help people, and then when the rubber meets the road all we get is bull****. Obama and his followers have to go.

    What in the hell does this have to do with Obama? This is about out-of-state workers coming in to take jobs from locals.

    They also came with their equipment.

    And there you have it. It's all about politics.

    The Daily Caller and their overlords want to sink Unions altogether, so they're using the disaster to bring in the scabs. What would you say if a bunch of illegal Mexicans showed up to do work? They're only there to help, right?

    I suppose they could ask everyone to just wait until the utility companies establish employment lines, do the paperwork get the week-or-two temporary new hires up to snuff on the equipment etc - waiting for that new equipment and trucks to arrive and be set up - all to give them a week or two work. Then to be laid off again.

    OR they could just allow the out-of-state professions showing up with their trucks, equipment and inventory to put the downed lines back up - and then go back to their own states in a couple of weeks. NONE of the work would be permanent for anyone.

    Seriously, some of these people that lost everything really need the work to make some money. The local residents should be given the opportunity for the jobs first and foremost. See, the unions protect the local workers from others trying to outsource THEIR jobs. Locals will get jobs and be able to contribute to the local economy as well, which is just another PLUS.
