Recently, New Jersey is just signing into law a bill that forces unions to back down on their demands. Link: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/06/28/new-jersey-anti-union-bill-chris-christie_n_885824.html
As more states start to look at how labor unions are part of the costs of a state budget bills, it's becoming clear that our nation is on an Anti- labor Union stance right now. Unions were great after the Great depression in the last century, but now 100 years later labor unions have become greedy in the wake of the financial crisis. A state like Wisconsin survived it's own Anti-Union bill as it became law and now, the union plans to support and put in place of new political people who will attempt to repeal the law. That could work, except the financial crisis in our nation and states will still exist. Unions are running around and trying to get labor agreements made before the new law affects their members. Some time in the new future, unions might have to disband so that their members can find the jobs they really need.
Meanwhile, Illegal Immigration has hit Williamsport, PA and clearly the gas industry as well. Link: http://www.sungazette.com/page/content.detail/id/565686/Mexican-illegal-faces-court-date.html?nav=5011
Which makes it a situation for Pennsylvania and the gas companies to come to grips that illegal immigration can be bad people if hired incorrectly. This news article proves just that. While one illegal immigrant did a very bad crime, that's person's roommates were rounded up as well. The point is, the gas industry should be employing people who need a job. They shouldn't be employing people under the table to send money back to Mexico.
The State of Pennsylvania needs to wake up. Not only we face Illegal immigration, but the gas industry as well. Yes, we are looking at an environmental disaster already. We may be too late to prevent them from being in our areas, but at least we should slow them down and make sure they do things right.
I hope the gas industry realizes that there are many things at stake here. One of them should be this: Telling their drivers to slow down and obey the laws of the PA roads. That is: no texting, cell phone, or driving drunk. Too many accidents are being caused by the out of state people with the local residents on a daily basis.
Just pray, my readers, that we don't have a more serious situation or crime that could change every one's lives.
Till next post, I'll clue you in.
