I joined the union later than most. I have been in columbus local now for 5 years. I am dying here because of lack of work. I keep hearing people complain but to who our BAs. I know mine here are working hard or it seems so anyway. I read a Thread that says we should come together and storm Washington. Lets face it this economy sucks because we can't afford to spend because we are not working. Only way to open those flood gates is to get Washington to see ALL BUILDING TRADES are what drives America. Not bailing out the big banks.
