REPORT: Truckers Say ‘Lazy Crane Operators’ Earning $250K Per Year Making Port Crisis Worse

posted by Hannity Staff - 10.18.21

An enraged trucker posted video on social media this week showing dozens of waiting vehicles lined-up in Tacoma, Washington as “lazy” crane operators belonging to a powerful union did little to move the cargo.

“The finger-pointing at the busy Los Angeles County ports comes as scores of container ships are anchored off the California coast, waiting in some cases for weeks to unload their freight. The Biden administration has scrambled to get shipping executives, port officials, and labor to tackle the problem. While the reasons for the burgeoning backlog are complex, truck drivers say not everyone seems to be working together,” writes the Washington Examiner.

“In 15 years of doing this job, I’ve never seen them work slower,” said one worker. “The crane operators take their time, like three to four hours to get just one container. You can’t say anything to them, or they will just go [help] someone else.”

“What you are talking about is perfectly described behavior,” another told the Examiner. “This is all a reflection of the management they have down there, the inmates run the asylum. The managers are all afraid to say anything because the operators are so powerful they get management fired if they don’t like them.”

BIDENFLATION: Buttigieg Claims Empty Shelves, Supply Chain Problems a Result of Biden’s Successes

posted by Hannity Staff - 10.18.21

Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg irked countless Americans Monday when he told CNN’s Jake Tapper that empty shelves at grocery stores are actually a result of Joe Biden’s successful economic policies.

“Demand is up, because income is up, because the president has successfully guided this economy out of the teeth of a terrifying recession,” said Buttigieg.

Buttigieg was reportedly in paternity leave in August as the nation’s supply chain chaos unfolded from coast to coast.

“Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg has been on paternity leave since mid-August – with his time off coming amid the Biden administration’s efforts to quell the supply chain crunch and the ongoing infrastructure debate on Capitol Hill to move forward with President Biden’s agenda,” reports Fox News.

 

“For the first four weeks, he was mostly offline except for major agency decisions and matters that could not be delegated,” a spokesperson for the Department of Transportation told Politico Playbook this week. “He has been ramping up activities since then.”

“Supply chain issues are a source of mounting concern as global economies attempt to meet surging demand and recover from the COVID-19 pandemic. Shortages of basic household items, such as toilet paper, raw materials needed for construction and critical tech components, like semiconductors, have contributed to a surge in prices for consumers,” adds Fox.
