To the editor:
Regarding those affected by the Whittier bridge project and especially the family that was taunted by the “welcome to Fallujah” message: The idea that these overpaid, overrated members of the politically connected union working on the project lost even an hour of pay or did not know who painted that message is laughable.
This is what you get when your state is run by unaccountable “big labor.”
To all of the politicians who are supposedly upset by this, there are answers.
First, do not accept the union’s assertion that they don’t know who did it; and second, start the process to make this “a right to work state” that, for the first time, would bring both accountability and customer service back into play.
It is time for fairness in our public works projects and that means you get and keep the job because you earned it, not because you feel entitled to it.
