To find out what’s next for those contractors we caught up with Kevin DiMico, the business representative with the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers. He says they’re hoping legislation filed by US representatives Chris Smith, a Republican from New Jersey, and fellow New Jersian Donald Norcross, a Democrat, can help those contractors get paid.
