I think I previously had mentioned something about the PRIME quoting $100 an
hour, then passing on to the SUB/Tier 1 a rate of $50 per hour, who passes on
$25 per hour, who passes on ONLY $25 per hour for the actual work.
The main contractor and tier 1 Sub DO NOT DO any work. They only push paper and
get paid political "confiscatory" amounts of PROFIT, while the WORKERS bust
their butts. Some of them get killed too.
Do any of those upstream care ?
I doubt it.
It's those workers who have tokeep their hands on the tower to save their lives.
Oh, yeah. The govt doesn't care if any of them get killed. No kill, no
paperwork. Govt worker goes home and has his dinner and beer.

Jim Lux got the point. You did not, and neither did several others. The
TV news program was NOT about individual liberty, nor was it about
government over-reaching, nor was it about anything political. It was
NOT about government regulations, it was NOT about you and me climbing
our towers, or hiring someone to do it. It was NOT about broadcast tower
work. It wasn't even about traditional 2-way tower work.
It was about BIG companies screwing over little people who were out of
work, down on their luck, so desperate that they will take really
dangerous jobs for $10/hour. And it's about those big companies using
various legal tricks to avoid their responsibility for those people they
take advantage of DYING. And it was about the government NOT doing
anything to protect them.
