We’ve warned about the coming chaos as local, state and federal budgets are forced to tighten.  Social unrest will become visible in America in 2011. This type of union protest is only the beginning.  Sen. Tom Coburn said ‘We must live within our means’ or face ‘apocalyptic pain’. The pain is coming because our leaders will not face the reality of the drastic cuts needed. European-Style Union, Socialist Protests Will Come to U.S. Soon.

Miles of roads stretching from as north as Whitestone, Queens, to the south shore of Staten Island still remained treacherously unplowed last night because of the shameless job action, several sources and a city lawmaker said, which was over a raft of demotions, attrition and budget cuts.

The snitches “didn’t want to be identified because they were afraid of retaliation,” Halloran said. “They were told [by supervisors] to take off routes [and] not do the plowing of some of the major arteries in a timely manner. They were told to make the mayor pay for the layoffs, the reductions in rank for the supervisors, shrinking the rolls of the rank-and-file.”

New York’s Strongest used a variety of tactics to drag out the plowing process — and pad overtime checks — which included keeping plows slightly higher than the roadways and skipping over streets along their routes, the sources said.

The snow-removal snitches said they were told to keep their plows off most streets and to wait for orders before attacking the accumulating piles of snow.
