Group Protests Losing Jobs At Shipyard

Posted: Updated:
PHILADELPHIA -

A protest for jobs for local workers was held Friday in Center City.

The coalition of union and non-union workers was protesting employment practices taking place in Philadelphia.

The group says they have lost their jobs at Aker Shipyard to out-of-state workers from southern states. A spokesperson says it all boils down to greed.

The group is calling on lawmakers to take on their cause.

We reached out to Aker Shipyard for a response to the allegations. We are waiting for a response.
