Wow, Bob. I think even the union flaggers are making close to $30. an hour. But that's hard, dangerous work. All kinds of weather and they have to be certified. Not just anyone can do it, but anyone can aspire to it. Here, the non-union laborers make about $10. to $15. Union, at least double.<quoted text>
I think some of these guys get it, I even think Seriouslady gets it if she thinks about some of the people who work FOR or around her relatives in construction. Not the union guys making $30+ an hour, but the scabs making $8. There are people no never make a lot more than that.
I am not for funding irresponsibility, but I don't consider a person like this irresponsible. Just didn't get any breaks.
My husband and I sure don't get it and never have and never will. And I don't care about the money, I am concerned about a system we absolutely cannot sustain. Are we going to have riots here when entitlements are cut like they have in Greece?
