    the problem is with management, not workers. The linemen who worked on my street-who were from New Brunswick(Canada, not Jersey)- spent 7 hours to restore power to 5 houses. The job is monumental. And when the Noreaster blew through Wednesday night and we lost power again, a crew worked at the height of the storm to restore power again. I could not have faulted them if they shut off the juice and came back in the morning, but they slogged away and fixed things. It appears management wa s woefully unready for a storm of this size, and that's inexcusable.

      From what the audit says, it seems the main problem lies with the top. You can't really blame workers. I wouldn't be able to work half as hard as some of those workers did. It's bone jarrring work in harsh conditions.
