    The hurricane-ravaged east coast has been receiving north Alabama help, but crews learned they'll be doing work in Long Island, New York instead of in New Jersey.

    Crews from Decatur Utilities headed up there this week, but Derrick Moore, one of the Decatur workers, said they were told by crews in New Jersey that they can't do any work there since they're not union employees.

    The crews that are in Roanoke, Virginia say they are just watching and waiting even though they originally received a call asking for help from Seaside Heights, New Jersey.

    Understandably, Moore said they're frustrated being told "thanks, but no thanks."

    Most labor unions outlived their usefulness at least 50 years ago.
  3. New Jersey has been mostly "in the dark" for years anyway. :eek:
  4. I guess Christie was too busy sucking up to obama to get involved.
