“Productivity lol. Guys are throwing up 60 10′ boards [of sheetrock – about
65 lbs. each] on their own, with no partner. Guys are running through
footage of framing that is robot like. Production is at it’s max my friend.
People can’t push any harder. And to be honest it’s disgusting how hard
they have to push.” So wrote a union carpenter in talking about what it
means to compete with non-union carpenters by being more “productive”....

The same way that the union leadership is betraying its own membership
(yes, that's a strong word - "betray"), it is betraying workers - and the
future generations too. And the results are a dismal failure all around.
