At last night’s freeholder meeting, during the public session a man from Millville stood up and asked the freeholders why all the people from Philadelphia are getting our county’s jobs and he, a local union worker has been unemployed for 8 months.
Lou and Nelson explained the unions divvy up the work, not the freeholders. So these freeholders are proclaiming they are pro-union and at the same time they are proclaiming that this does not in any way benefit the unemployed workers of Cumberland County.
If the unions don’t use our local members, maybe they should bargain a little harder? Why not raise the limits on required union work, do whatever it takes until the unions use our local union members. The bargaining works two ways, but with Nelson on the board, he has bigger interests. The unions give to Lou and Nelson major contributions, and our workers are left standing in the unemployment line. THIRTEEN PERCENT unemployment in Cumberland County, and Lou and Nelson advocate giving jobs to Philadelphia and Camden!. What’s that about?
