IBEW protesters blow hard, offer no specifics about the wages and standards of the contractor, Energy Systems and Installation, ESI they are protesting.Headquartered in Lebanon County, Pennsylvania, "ESI primarily specializes in large-scale solar photovoltaic (electric) arrays and has clients throughout the northeastern United States."
ESI, based in Lebanon County, Pennsylvania, may be installing solar panels or doing other roof work on the the former Borders Bookstore building at Germantown Avenue and Bethlehem Pike that is being renovated as a daycare center, the largest of Children of America's 47 locations. See http://www.childrenofamerica.com/ The protester speaking directed me to find out about the protest online using my iPhone but I wanted to hear it straight from the horses mouth. I visited IBEW's website http://www.ibew98.org/ but could find out nothing there about the action against ESI. About to enter a Kohl's store in Roxborough, I spoke with the picketers out there and walked away even though I needed to buy a couple of shirts. I also videoed these guys with their rat outside a Planet Fitness in Northeast Philadelphia. They would make their case a lot better if they could explain how the wages and standards unions have fought hard for and brought to the working person are under attack. I told them they were full of s____ but really on this occasion they were full of hot air. I also accused them of paying off politicians like Philadelphia City Councilman Bill Green ($10,000 or much more?) campaign contribution who wants to be mayor at which point my interviewee asked me to leave.
