Unions will put people to work to build roads but they will all stand around doing very little and making a project cost twice as much and take twice as long. Next time your drive by the guys in yellow/orange vests--see how many are actually working and how many are standing around doing NOTHING. BLOW YOUR HORN-let them know you are watching. We need affordable roads but unions give us very little in return for our tax dollars.
Drag out the work, get overtime and don't worry about anyone watching you. We are in the Union and accountability is not part of our contracts.
This is what we get for our taxes Mr. Governor.
