Non-Union FEMA Crews, Water and Other Supplies Sit Idle Thanks To Unions & Red Tape[/b] It’s been two weeks since Hurricane Sandy killed 113 people, wiped out portions of towns, and knocked out power to millions. It has also been two weeks since Barack Obama pledged, “No bureaucracy. No red tape.” However, according to multiple public and private sources, unions and union-related red tape are causing workers from out of state to be turned back, as well as workers contracted by FEMA, as well as tons of supplies, already in New York and New Jersey to sit idle—at a cost of millions to taxpayers. more @ http://www.redstate.com/2012/11/12/no-red-tape-non-union-fema-crews-water-and-other-supplies-sit-idle-thanks-to-unions-red-tape/ :ochange: [/quote] So the Feds held up their end of the bargain, sent supplies and help.. and it's being stopped at the State, County, or Municipal Level? ... By Unions? Who the hell runs this country? Unions? Those who are pissed about the lack of resources being deployed need to find out who to direct their anger at.. and then go after them with a vengeance. [/quote] yup..seems that way more from the article.. (snip) While there are about 4,000 National Guardsmen at Bennett Field, there are hundreds of out-of-state contractors for FEMA, many of them linemen and electricians, that are not being deployed to help turn power pack on for residents because of the red tape. On Sunday, out of the 400-500 workers available, according to the source, only three crews went out. Crews, he said, are usually two-man teams. The union crews, the source stated, are free to come and go as they please, yet the non-union FEMA contractors are being held back because of red tape requirements. The red-tape bottleneck, he said, comes from the Corps of Engineers. They get work orders in (places that need help), but the work orders don’t come out as they should. “I’ve never seen anything like it,” the source said over the weekend. On Sunday night, FEMA contractors put in one generator for a 14-floor building. Just one. On top of that, there are tons of supplies in trailers, as well as rows and rows of water that are not being delivered. [/quote] So the "core of engineers" is the reason for the hold up? Is it because they have to be sure the places are safe to be hooked up before they can send a crew? Because hooking up a water soaked electrical system would be nothing but trouble and potential death to those in the building. If that is the case.. most electric lineman are able to check the safety status of buildings .. in a case like this where there are so many buildings without power.. they should allow the lineman to inspect before hooking up.. if there are questions once they've inspected, then call in the "core of engineers" for a look. Who does the "core of engineers" take their orders from? Do you know? And why in heavens name would they stop the supplies and water from being delivered? [/quote]
Inside the giant billowy white tents, the massive klieg lights glare down from the ceiling all night long. The air is loud with the buzz of generators pumping out power. The post-storm housing — a refugee camp on the grounds of the Monmouth Park racetrack – is in lockdown, with security guards at every door, including the showers.
No one is allowed to go anywhere without showing their I.D. Even to use the bathroom, “you have to show your badge,” said Amber Decamp, a 22-year-old whose rental was washed away in Seaside Heights, New Jersey.
