Unions have outlived their usefulness. We have all seen the results of unions on our streets and highways...10 guys standing around with shovels while one guy works. Have you ever driven past a construction project where the majority of workers were not standing around? Those are your tax dollars "at work."

same old lie for over 100 years. I'm sure in Santa Teresa it must be a b*tch to have to pay minimum wage to the undocumented.

These 10 guys standing around are your "sidewalk superintendents"

Thank you BHO. Why do you think it takes 10 weeks to do 2 weeks of work?
