    Really? Having worked with non-union 'construction workers', I find it reassuring that we are locking unqualified people out of the work on vital projects. All too many of these non-union 'construction workers' are undocumented aliens. Where I work, we do not allow non-union contractors to work on our vital machinery. Even though we are non-union ourselves.

    What we do need to do, and, yes, it will increase costs, it to have more apprentices being trained on these jobs. That was one of the many benefits of the old WPA and CCC. But we will have a better trained workforce as the economy comes back on line, and that will speed the recovery.

    I'm sure I'll get flamed for this, but I blame the Republicans. The Democrats are who they are. They have always supported unions, big government and socialistic policies. Even when they say they are centrists, everyone knows they're not. Republicans, on the other hand, have been trying to pander to conservatives and claim they are for smaller government, but they aren't. They have failed miserably during the last 8 years and allowed people like Obama, Pelosi and Reid to take power. Once the Democrats pass their huge government spending bills, that'll be that.

    Exactly how does paying union dues make someone more qualified than the next guy? Do you have to pass a test to be a union member? Unqualified minds would like to know.
