This week, Merit Canada launched a new website and advertising campaign to ensure that all construction employees are able to work on public infrastructure projects paid for with their own tax dollars. It seems obvious that we should do the same thing here in the United States.
The simple fact is that many of the projects in the United States that are funded by taxpayer money often cost more simply because of Project Labor Agreements that keep non-union workers from a fair chance at competing for the job. When big government and Big Labor team up, the rest of us lose.
We need to push our government, the same way Merit Canada, our friendly neighbors to the North, are pushing there’s.
