Have you ever been part of a team and half the team thought they didn't need your half of the team to win? Take for instance football. Usually the offense gets all the glory but can the offense win a game without sending in their defense to stop the oppositions offense? HELL NO! Football is war, the struggle between labor and business is war, and in war there is always casualties. Cinch up your Jock, tighten up that chin strap and make sure your pads are strapped up.... we are about to play the smash mouth game of skilled labor.
Just like on the field, in construction there is a bunch of hard hitting, tough as nails, Type A personalities, who want nothing more that to go out there, handle business, day in and day out and come home and relax with their spoils of war. Problem is, over the last 30 years the “spoils of war” more closely resemble the spoils of a college dorm room refrigerator than a vikings plunder. What the hell happened you ask, well I'll tell you!
