GRAND ISLE, La. — Officials from Jefferson Parish claim BP bused 400 cleanup workers into Grand Isle on Friday in time for a visit from President Barack Obama. Jefferson Parish Councilman John Young said the workers were brought in to clean oil off Grand Isle’s beaches. The extra workers were brought in for Friday only, at a rate of $12 an hour, officials told the press. They were mostly from Terrebonne and Lafourche parishes. Jefferson Parish Councilman Chris Roberts called BP’s efforts “shameful.” “The level of cleanup and cooperation from BP in the last week in no way compares to the effort shown on the island today,” Roberts said. “This is a total shame that a mockery has been made of this visit by the executives of BP.” During a visit Friday to Louisiana, Obama toured a beach where tar balls are washing ashore and attended a briefing at a Coast Guard station in Grand Isle. Oil has been washing ashore in Grand Isle for about a week. The workers were informed not to talk to the press about anything, after president Obama departed the workers were bused out leaving the coast line empty of workers to clean up the oil spill.
