Or do they just keep the same business busy employing the same unions slobs leaning on shovels ?
Well seems you made up your mind. Well when I drive by a construction site in building a new bridge (New keyword), they were suspended in the area making the columns.
Now, its not to keep unions in business. Its to resurface old roads, build better bridges, and make traffic move much smoother. But I bet you didn't notice, but yes go ahead and bitch that the government does nothing for you. Not the fact that without roads, we would have to walk to work or pay enormous toll prices every day.
But yeah HORRIBLE GOVERNMENT!!!!
The fair way to support our road construction and repair is to charge a tax based on weight and miles travelled.
Or at least convert the fixed per gallon road tax on fuel to a % of price tax.
As fuel prices rise so does road construction/repair consts both in operating and material costs. but the gallons of fuel consumed tends to drop as the price rises so the road tax available for projects are cut short on funds.
In my view, road projects at best create temporary jobs. And in many areas they unfortunately provide work opportunities more for illegal immigrants than for American workers. Trying to rely on infrastructure as a stimulus in hopes that it will have a similar effect as when the interstate system was first created ignores a fundamental difference in the times. Back then, commerce was limited and subsequently opened up, because of the creation of the interstate system, and it is in that way that the most job opportunities emerged. Nowadays, commerce has the reach, even if some of the roads suck. Making the roads a bit smoother simply won't offer any substantial impact on the economy.
Even if it gave money to illegals, don't they spend the majority of the money? You know keeping people employed. They actually spend alot of their money.
Do road projects create jobs?
Everyone knows that roads practically build themselves.
I must have missed the union slobs somewhere. Next time you want a building built, call some of your Mexican slobs to do the work.
I noticed roads in the country seem to grow out of apple orchards.
So lets get on with building glass highways of the future.
And if paving the roads over doesnt fix the economy by this time next year..............PAVE THE MOTHERSUCKER AGAIN!!!
