    A bill that was authored by an Ironworkers’ union organizer to expand union-only Project Labor Agreements–to include Hurricane Sandy cleanup and reconstruction–passed the New Jersey Senate on Monday along party lines 23-13. The Ironworkers’ union organizer who drafted the pro-union bill, Steven Sweeney, also happens to be the president of the New Jersey Senate and recently accused New Jersey Governor Chris Christie of “praying” for Hurricane Sandy to hit New Jersey.

    Now the New Jersey State Senate has voted to compel that reconstruction to only be carried out by union workers. If you were wondering why politicians were so desperate to get the Sandy funding, it wasn’t to help people, they could care less about the storm victims, it was to bring in more pork and more cash for their union pals.

    Not to worry. Your next GOP POTUS candidate Gov. Christie will never sign it.

    Well well, what a shock..that Christy thinks so much of the people he represents, he has limited who can come in and do cleanup for them..
