Crews from Alabama were insulted, called scabs and scumbags and turned away when they showed up to help restore power in New York and New Jersey. It's sad when you have to be a union worker to help fellow citizens with their basic needs. What is wrong with the people there that would deny their neighbors help because of their intolerance. Typical crap from "so-called" compassionate people.
Crews from Georgia were also turned away. A man from Florida received a black eye in the confrontation that resulted from them showing up to help with utility lines. People in the South help their neighbors...of course they have been thru many of these storms before and know that they can count on fellow citizens in other states for help. It's sad when union workers deny help from right to work states. How is that fair to the people suffering from the wrath of this storm. People have been quiet about this as well as the media. Maybe the public in NY & NJ need to know what has been going on.
