    If they turned away volunteers, I can only imagine it is because there are still unemployed workers who SHOULD get first dibs on any jobs. Giving the work to local employees helps boost the local economy.

    I'm sure you would feel differently if you needed work. You know the union workers have been effected by our crappy economy as well, and they ARE American citizens, and you denigrating people who just want jobs like you do is what is sick.

    Where's your hero Christie handing out waivers to the labor laws of NJ? They have to follow the law.

    Yes, but they are NOT putting much money back into the local economy. If you put the local people to work in your own city, your city benefits as a result. That is only common sense.

    This is not about a job. This is about helping people in a disaster. I'm not denigrating anything other than union rules to prevent people from receiving help in a disaster. That is sick.

    Putting money into the economy is not the job here. Helping people in a disaster is what has to be done. You're not getting it. People need food, water, shelter, clothing, and power. Wake up.

    There is nothing wrong with employing the local people FIRST. That is what the problem is, I believe. The local union workers who ARE capable want to be put to work, and there is absolutely NOTHING wrong with that.

    This has nothing to do with employing people. Do you understand?
