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.”
