  •  Forklift = Teamster (0+ / 0-)

    One second with Google shows that Forklift operators are Teamsters, not members of the Laborers and Mason Tenders Union. AFAICT, that union comprises largely unskilled laborers. If you have a refutation, please be specific, because right now it looks like you know even less about this than I do.

    •  Likewise, pipe layers have their own union n/t (0+ / 0-)
      •  Wrong on both counts (1+ / 0-)

        Forklifts are operated by Laborers when working with Bricklayers. Operators run them for everything else. You are confusing pipelayers and pipefitters-two different jobs. I have worked in construction for 25 years, that is how it works around here.

        Where are all the jobs, Boehner?
