Nagin: Unions Rock! :
"The City of New Orleans was left virtually broke after Hurricane Katrina, so Mayor Ray Nagin could not hide his excitement Wednesday when a major labor union announced it will invest $700 million into the struggling community.

'All I can say off script is unions rock,' said Nagin.

The AFL-CIO’s pledge included $250 million in direct financing for hopefully 10,000 renovated housing units. The idea was to give lower income people a chance to have a place of their own."
