    The vitriolic anti-union hatred from the far right continues unabated.

    What in the world are you talking about? Union workers refusing help while people are in desperate need is the topic.

    Evil? I don't think they're evil. I think they have gotten a bit out of control and greedy though. Overall, though, I support unions for the good of the workers. I think they are especially important in industries like the construction industry, but they do need to be reigned in a bit IMO.

    Interesting and how would you describe the actions of the union with respect to those 'inconvenienced' from the lack of electricty turning away non-union linemen?

    Of interest in the original article:

    The crews were told to stand down. In fact, Moore said the crew from Trinity is already headed back home.
    Nonunion Ala. crews turned away from Sandy recovery - WAFF-TV: News, Weather and Sports for Huntsville, AL

    So with so many out of power there is enough help they can turn away qualified folks? REALLY? I thought you folks on the 'left' are the compassionate ones...

    What's wrong with working 60 hours a week?
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    I am not surprised at all by non union workers being turned away from trying to help in this disaster, it doesn't surprise me in the least.
