shore wages, but you've got the
money that the crews off the ships
spend here," said Edward Reed, port
director. "You've got the bunkers of
.fuel oil, the supplies that the ships

involved indirectly, ship chandlers,
freight forwarders, custom house
brokers. You know the whole smear.
They're all static.."
