Help not wanted

Labour gives labourers a reality check:
Advice for Tradespeople From Union - Feb 17, 2009

A union official has some advice for tradespeople from this province, living away, who may be thinking about coming home for the work on major projects. The president of the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners, Local 579, Gus Doyle, says best check first to see if there is really any work available. He says a lot of people are under the misconception that there is a lot of work in the province, now. He indicates those returning and looking to join the local of a union, need to realize that there is a local preference policy in place regarding time of residence and availability of local workers. He says if there are no local workers available, then there may be jobs but many people think they can get work as soon as they get home and that is not the case.
Where, oh where, might many people have got that idea from?
