Plenty of locals ARE working

LIGHTNING is a truck rental company. The drivers hired are out of Teamsters LOCAL 391. Although this is a right-to-work state, the reality is that unless you are in the Teamsters or IATSE 491, you probably won't get hired since the productions make deals with the local unions. There are three shows in production at Screen Gems and most of the people there working ARE local. There are accountants, department heads and producing staff from elsewhere, but set dressers, carpenters, painters, location managers, office staff, prop masters, etc. are from Wilmington, or at least North Carolina. I know because I'm working there and I am local for 25 years!
