So it's curios to see how they're managing to drum up protesters in Trenton today as they continue to whine and snivel.
There appears to be efforts from unions to get more members to beat the drum today in Trenton. According to an e-mail obtained by The Star-Ledger, CWA Local 1038 is preparing for the rally with boxed lunches, leaflets and ponchos because of the expected rain.Really, Paul? Reimbursing wages and free lunch isn't paying someone?
The union is also offering to reimburse wages for anyone who takes a half-day off to participate in the rally.
"You must use your own time, either vacation or AL (administrative leave), and give the local a photocopy of your paystub. Please note that the payment for lost-time wages will be mailed to you; it will not be paid tomorrow," the e-mail states.
"What the union does internally is an internal union matter," Local 1038 President Paul Alexander said. "We’re not paying thousands of people to attend the rally."
The rank-and-file at least seemed buoyed by the spirit of Wisconsin on Wednesday. Some 100 toll collectors protested outside the Turnpike Authority offices in Woodbridge to oppose Christie’s efforts to privatize toll collections in the New Jersey Turnpike and Garden State Parkway.Privatizing toll collections has been going on nationwide for years, long before Christie showed up. If there was ever a job that can easily be eliminated, it's getting rid of these belligerent fat-asses at the toll booths. I wonder if this leech Dunphy even knows when the next gubernatorial election is?
"We gotta get this guy Christie out of office, he’s killing us," said John Dunphy of Kearny, a 25-year member of Local 194. "It seems like they’re picking on the little guy more than the big guys."
