Winter Wonderland in NYC Courtesy of Sanitation Workers and Mayor Bloomberg

As New York City is snowed under, it turns out the City's sanitation workers may have been contributing to this natural wonder. New York Post reports:

Selfish Sanitation Department bosses from the snow-slammed outer boroughs ordered their drivers to snarl the blizzard cleanup to protest budget cuts -- a disastrous move that turned streets into a minefield for emergency-services vehicles, The Post has learned.

Miles of roads stretching from as north as Whitestone, Queens, to the south shore of Staten Island still remained treacherously unplowed last night because of the shameless job action, several sources and a city lawmaker said, which was over a raft of demotions, attrition and budget cuts.

... The snitches "didn't want to be identified because they were afraid of retaliation," Halloran said. "They were told [by supervisors] to take off routes [and] not do the plowing of some of the major arteries in a timely manner. They were told to make the mayor pay for the layoffs, the reductions in rank for the supervisors, shrinking the rolls of the rank-and-file."

New York's Strongest used a variety of tactics to drag out the plowing process -- and pad overtime checks -- which included keeping plows slightly higher than the roadways and skipping over streets along their routes, the sources said.

The snow-removal snitches said they were told to keep their plows off most streets and to wait for orders before attacking the accumulating piles of snow.

and to collect fat overtime checks. They are ostensibly doing this to stick it to Mayor Bloomberg.

Emergency vehicles are stuck on the streets of New York thanks to them. Instead of sticking it to the billionaire mayor, they are likely killing people. One new-born baby in Brooklyn was dead probably because of them.

And what does Mayor Bloomberg do? Blame the public.

That's the public union and the elected official for you. And remember, taxpayers in New York City, you are paying for their destructive non-service and for their fat benefits and pensions while some among you are paying for it with their lives.

This is ridiculous...all these people from the top on down should be held responsible for the deaths during this storm.
