Just received notice of a 2nd lawsuit against the Peoria County Board filed by non-union asphalt pavers whose businesses are located in Peoria County. I wish them success. There is growing evidence of shrinking union membership in the private sector and an expanding of unions in the public sector.
The word is out from union leadership; expand unions membership in the private sector through elected public bodies. Make it more difficult to do business with the public sector for those not unionized and those who do not always pay prevailing wages.
Consequences of the Davis-Bacon keep coming back to eliminate competitiveness costing the taxpayers more dollars.
Just like the minimum wage acts that allow illegal immigrants to take less than minimum wage thus eliminating school kids and job entry kids from access to these jobs and earning, at least, some money.
