It’s great to see our governor recognizing a disparity in the rate of local workers used versus out-of-state people and calling on change. This is exactly why P.O.W.E.R. was created to bring awareness to this very same issue Gov. Kasich is talking about. We need our political leaders to step up to the plate. Utilizing local contractors and labor is a bi-partisan agenda.Unfortunately some members in our statehouse are at the whims of the oil and gas industry and are afraid to speak out about anything which might go against big oil’s industry leaders. All we can do is take heed of what is happening and take action to correct the situation.
