[/QUOTE=ChrisL;1061095068]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.[/QUOTE]
Its not just about jobs, its about capacity, equipment and availability. The unemployed electrical workers most will not have the equipment nesseary to do line work ei Heavy equipment like line trucks ect.. The line trucks from out of state also have crews with them and the crews have been together. Remember that hiring people takes time, time to hire, time to orientate, time to evaluate, time to get equiped, and be mated with heavy equipment and time to get to the downed lines. These people from out of state already have done almost all of that. There will be plenty of work and time after to hire locals, but the power lines have to be back on line as quick as possible so the rest of the community can start conducting business again. Thats why I find the unions turning the volunteers away assine.

Certification is important. Unions are accountable for the work that is done. It's like board certification for doctors. Why would you use the services of people whose training is questionable?

I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.
