It's time to reverse the power that the city, state and federal governments have given to the labor unions.
The whole idea of a wage scale is corrupt. I've seen carpenters worth half the "prevailing wage" and some worth twice it. Let the contractors decide what kind of employees they want to hire and what they have to pay to get them.

Perhaps if they would make a true prevailing wage instead of just reprinting the union scale it might have significance.

Whatever happened to people we have be letting into the country across our borders to do the work that American do not want to do - unless paid as much as a person with a Masters in Computer Science from India.
Does education has any relevance in Govt. jobs. Or should be pay everyone what a CEO should make.
I vote for teachers to be paid as much as Frank Benest. It is the future of our children which is at stake !!!!
If we cannot do a job for a reasonable price - do what Americans do best - hand it off to China.
