Public Monies for Construction Workers

President-elect Obama’s plan to spend hundreds of millions of dollars in public construction will certainly be funneled through union-only construction projects.

Although only 15% of America’s private-public hardhat labor force currently belongs to a union, you can rest assured — thanks in part to the billion dollars in political spending by the Big Labor Bosses — public monies will only be available to companies that are 1) union or 2) pay an inflated “prevailing” wage rate. It will be a raw deal for the taxpayers but a good deal for the union bosses.
