CHRISTIE AND PUBLIC UNIONS AT ODDS AFTER IRENE

225px-ChChristieA new report says union workers and Gov. Chris Christie are on separate sides again. The Star-Ledger reports that Union heads were upset that they had to come to work, even though Christie encouraged private workers to stay home unless entirely possible. Many parts of the state did not make out as good as Cape May County and flooding has continued into Monday. The report says that many public workers ended up sitting in traffic to make it into the office on Monday. Christie said during a press conference that it is the state’s job to show up to work during times like this and get things back on track.
