More Big Labor Handouts in California

The potential bankruptcy of California’s government hasn’t stopped the politicians from demanding taxpayers pay more for public works projects by ensuring only Big Labor-backed construction firms get the work.  By demanding Project Labor Agreements (PLAs) politicians drive up the cost of construction by over 25% and deny more than 80% of California’s contractors the opportunity to even bid on the work.  PLAs are kick back schemes that benefit union bosses and lobbyists.
