Project Labor Agreement (PLA): A Special Interest Kickback Scheme

By signing Executive Order 13502, the president is using taxpayer dollars to give big labor union bosses an expensive kickback that will drive up the cost of federal construction by as much as 20% and dramatically expand the number of construction workers under union monopoly control – not to mention the union dues and fees.  When it comes to helping his Big Labor buddies, cost to the taxpayers or rank and file workers doesn’t seem to matter.
