What an unwieldly sense of entitlement. I remember the presidential convention in 2000 where the electric workers said they were the only ones qualified to plug in a personal computer/laptop-LOL.
Artificially contrived make work project doesn't not mean job security.
Not much difference between a gangster hit man and these entitled thugs.

These beastly men are basically pale irish and slavic white trash, a bunch of alcoholic goons, many of the young ones also snort oxys, they all find ways to milk worker's comp or disability. You'll find sleazy white trash men like these dwelling in river wards like Pennsport or Fishtown, just scum of low, unremarkable birth. Most aspire to own a pickup truck with their names on the sides, some starter white trash dudes have their first name on the breast pocket of their work uniform.
If they showed up to my construction project and tried to play dirty, they'd get hit so hard they'd be a year or so before they're walking again without crutches or a walker.

Democrat running for congress won't donate to charity or give up the Iron Workers 10K donation.
So ill gotten gains from CRIME ie extortion are ok if spent on a political career and union agenda?

These men are filthy, blue-collar beasts. Big, dumb and stupid. Uncouth apes. They turn wrenches and follow the Flyers. For white trash dudes like these guys, success is measured by the number of vans a guy owns with epoymous advertising on the sides. Many of them work with concrete and steel and dirt and grease, so that must really stink. They do too.
