Yep, it sucks! That's the Dems for you. By the time the bridge is finished it will cost 3 times as much now that unions are involved.

a union represents a buch of idiots that can't get a job in the real world, and need to have a bunch of ginnes or "tough guys" get the work for them. That means, that becuase YOU as a individual can't get a job on your own, and obviously you can't or we would not be having this discussion you need the help of "others" just watch utube it's there clear as crystal! I mean come on, you need to disrupt a job site cuase you assholes can't get on it, VERY IMATURE!! How would you like it, if I decied to protest and distrub your work site, it's very childish and you union scum act it very well, probably the ONLY good work you people can really do for anything!

Also, do you really know where YOUR hard earned money goes once they exrtact it from your paycheck, feeding a fat ginne more lasagna, making shure a fat poltician has a nice yaught, come on, are you that blind!! I KNOW I AM NOT GOIN TO PAY TO WORK! Why would any person want to pay a "FEE" to work to make a living, unions are so COMMUNISTIC/SOCALISTIC it's not even funny!!

I think I covered it, and I know you will rebuttle, it's only natural for you to defend something to show pride, and blah, blah, blah...but I don't care...talk all you want back...I am just gonna laugh and shake my head and think about what's for dinner...have a great day..UNION PRIDE, WHOOOO!!! More gay union pride, YUCK!

I guess you would know best, you know, with that 3rd grade education you're sporting here.

Go enjoy your food that you purchased on the EBT card; better yet, why not choke on it.

I have a four year degree and acutally can spell and dictate much better thank you! I have been at my job for almost 20 years now and have two homes..how about you? How's that union treating ya! Like when your money goes to someone else? I now the only people that take money from me is the goverment, not some union club that you need to pay just to get a job cause you can't!! Thrid grade, looks like someone is jealous that I make more than them, and don't need to pay to join some communist club so I can work!! Looks like someboday can't get a job on their own..Oh wait, that you stupid...why don't you go picket a subway or something...maybe they give you somework there too!!

Seems to me that someone with your big four year degree could spell. What type of retirement plan do you have, or maybe you don't know that either. What about health insurance. More than likely none. And two boxes doesn't equil two homes for most people.

I know quite an array of union laborers...carpenters, iron workers, foremen, etc..that will be obligated to work on this bridge due to lack of area projects. Guess what? They are LOCAL, they are our neighbors, friends, and family. Non union will HAVE to be hired also, due to the scope of the project.
Let the workers work.
Trade labor unions took a black eye from the others.

Union Hater most likely doesn't work, lives in a trailer, smokes with taxpayer money and drives around town with his muffler hanging down.

pretty close! But trolls have a hard time registering vehicles. More like drives a riding lawn mower with no deck!
Ha! they deleted posts 14 & 15.

This new bridge is going to be awesome, and very well made. Good ole' American craftsmanship.
