QCOnline has an article about how the QCs has more jobs than the unions can fill.
It seems construction is booming (at last!) in the QCs but Big Labor is having problems getting workers and is having to import unionists from out of state.
According to the article, the reasons why there is a dearth of union workers in the QC is:
1. Applicants failing or refusing to take drug tests
2. No driver’s license
3. Failing background checks.
These union workers earn $22, $25, $32 an hour and when benefits are added in it is upward of $40 per hour.
If this is true, what does it say about the QC work force? Obviously nothing good.
On the other hand, it may be true that these potential unionists don’t want to fork over $33 every month so the labor bosses can pour their hard earned $$$$ into Democrat campaign coffers.
Or it may be that it is a sweeter life to do drugs, live off unemployment or welfare, live in Section 8 housing and get food stamps. I have no idea, except it is a really sad commentary on life in the QCs—there are good paying jobs out there, but few want to bother with the details of obtaining them.
