    A Pennsylvania union leader has come under fire after threatening legal action against the city of Allentown for allowing a Boy Scout to voluntarily clear a walking path in a local park.

    Nick Balzano, president of the Service Employees International Union's Allentown chapter, said last week that the union might file a grievance against the city for allowing 17-year-old Kevin Anderson to clear the hiking trail, instead of paying some of the 39 recently laid-off SEIU members to do the work.

    Balzano's office did not return messages left by FoxNews.com, but the Morning Call quoted him as telling the city council that the union would be "looking into the Cub Scout or Boy Scout who did the trails … There's to be no volunteers

    Unbelievable. A kid doing the work of 39 men. They should be embarrassed enough to not let it public. Despicable.

    My son I an Eagle Scout. You should see the projects he and his fellow scouts have done in our community. A lawsuit like this could have a chilling effect on the program. But who cares right? They won't let homos go camping with little boys. They deserve to be destroyed Errrr!

    I thought Mr Obama wanted people to volunteer?
    I bet this kid is a liberal that took Mr Obama to heart, and now the evil conservative union bosses want to stop him from helping.

    Must be a sarcastic post, I am interested in Obama and his "volunteer" program.

    This is straight Mao marxism right from the history books, Anita Dunn loves Mao, Obama loves marxism, what they do not like is the exercise of ones free will, you are encouraged to volunteer but it must be through the "state".

    Good point, the 17 year old kid didn't register through the state, and it put a halt to 39 stimulus package jobs.

    So Obama gets to count this as 39 jobs created right? Sounds like they needed to layoff just one more guy huh folks?
