My Problem with all of this is that I am a member of local 157, not a member of an Indiana local. I want to work as a union carpenter, not a scab house framer. The sad fact of Jersey construction is that the jobs are not there. Furthermore, the money is not there. I'm trying to make a living here, just like everyone else. New York is a mega city, it needs out of state workers. Just because times are bad is no reason to throw good brothers and sisters out on their ass. Times wont always be bad, and the day will come again when the demand for employees outweighs that of the supply. But I guess short sighted wisdom says kick out well qualified carpenters for the sake of short term employment gain.
