On Saturday, Sept. 26, 2009, Carpenters Local 195  joined other members of the Illinois Valley Building Trades to picket a new Hampton Inn that is being built in Peru, IL.   The Hampton Inn is being constructed in an enterprise zone and will not be paying property taxes for 10 years.  They are using materials and workers from Indiana instead of supporting the local Peru economy.

Perhaps this photo says it best.
