South Carolina linemen were in NY right after Sandy and were told that only UNION workers were allowed to do the repairs. That is insane, bordering criminal.
Yep! And they will work reaaalllllyyy slowly to get all of that overtime.
NJ supposedly just got another 1600 linemen this week from somewhere . They went from 265,000 out on Friday to 46,000 out now. Sister still doesn’t have power. But at least they got a generator.
Don’t blame the power companies. Blame the unions who sent non-union people home so they could make more time and a half, double time on Sundays, and triple time on the holidays!!
Cuomo’s remarks condemning the power companies smell of government takeover to me. They are all so evil and deceitful.
