New York Corruption

Reading an article like this makes me crazy. This is one of the main reasons I hate living in New Jersey. Here I am, paying enormous property taxes and high prices for consumer goods, just so that relatives of KNOWN CRIMINALS get $400,000 a year no-show jobs on the waterfront and in the state and county government offices. When asked about what these people do they shrug and say, “Influence”!

Here we are, in the 21st century, in a modern country and we still pay mobsters to keep the unions from striking on the waterfronts! We pay off the unions by paying THREE people to operate a crane that can only be operated by one, allowing people to milk overtime so they can “work” 27 hours a day.

My only hope is that these stupid mobsters kill the golden goose so that the work moves out of their control to docks elsewhere in the US. But are these other docks any any less tainted by their thieving influence?
