The highest honor
The Bureau County Republican regularly reports on issues important to our community’s workers. This Labor Day, I would like to highlight individuals whose work is on display every day: Merit shop construction craft-professionals.
The vast majority of construction workers — 86.8 percent — choose not to belong to a labor organization. They have made the decision to put their professional craft skills to use in a merit shop, free enterprise environment.
However, the livelihood of these merit shop workers is under assault by politicians who reward labor unions with political favors by supporting government-mandated project labor agreements (PLAs).
