Getting to the root of the issue: High cost of union laborI heard it mentioned in FoxNews today, but I have not seen anyone mention the fact that the reason all US ports are operated by foreign companies is that union labor is so expensive, no domestic company wants to get in the business.
I would love to hear more about the root of the issue: Union labor costs are exposing our national ports to foreign control. Eliminate union regulation and controls, and bring labor costs down, and you'll see how US based companies line up to get into the business.
Mary Katharine is recommending Frank's blog, War Footing, for port related news.
Frank is also blogging, here, and looks to be updating fairly frequently. May be a good place to look in while this drama does unfold.Instapundit has good comments from his readers and thoughts on the issue as well.
