The other day, I was at Walmart, and I was shopping for a new pot to cook my gourmet style top Ramen noodles. I like to put different ingredients in with them so that I have a nice snack during the day, it works out good for me while I'm writing articles on the Internet to have a solid lunch. Anyway, I saw a gal in there who was wearing a name tag, so I asked her where the pots and pans were, and she told me that she didn't work there, she worked for the cable company, but she just got off work, and was still wearing her corporate name tag. I laughed, and said; "maybe they should hire you to work here part-time to." Slot Game Online.
She indicated to me that her husband worked in construction, specifically in concrete, and that he was having a tough time finding work because there wasn't a whole lot of new construction going on around here. We briefly talked about the Palm Springs Airport construction project to build the new control tower and fix up the facilities there; and FAA Construction infrastructure project. She had heard about it, and although her husband was working on that construction project, some of his friends were. Slot Game Online.
Interestingly enough, there was an article in our local paper; The Desert Sun during the last week of July, after all of the construction was stopped due to the fact that the FAA was running out of money during the debt limit crisis and debate in Washington DC. Anyway, the article was titled "Power Drywall Ruined by Rain - Some Workers Lose Jobs Due to FAA Funding Standoff," by Marcel Honore. But it turns out that the supervisor on the project ran out and told everyone to stop what they were doing, and to go home because the project had been canceled. Slot Game Online.
It turns out that the drywall for the control tower they were building had just been put in, and there wasn't a forecast for rain, and rather than cover it up they were all asked to leave, so all the workers walked off the job as they were instructed. A few days later we had a big rainstorm, one of those big summer rains with the lightning and a downpour. It happens, unfortunately all the drywall got wet and ruined, and we all know that that can cause mold, and future lawsuits. Slot Game Online.
Even though the U.S. Congress did pass a bill to continue funding all these FAA infrastructure projects, all that drywall was ruined it had to be ripped out. As a taxpayer I'm not too happy about that. And I imagine the construction workers who thought they had finally got work, been asked to leave the jobsite in the middle of the workday, weren't too happy either. In any case, while I was talking to this gal at Walmart, she said that there may be some more transportation infrastructure jobs coming up that would put her husband back to work, and she thought that was a good thing. Concrete construction has been very slow indeed. Slot Game Online.
We are one of those areas that does have shovel ready jobs available, and infrastructure which needs to be built. So her husband may actually go back to work in the next few months. Of course, unfortunately the Congress has spent so much money on social programs, and due to this debt limit deal, and the need to rein in federal spending, along with all the budget cuts at the state level out here in California, none of these projects may go forward as predicted. Slot Game Online.
Indeed, I don't know about you, but I'm wondering why we even need Washington DC, why we pay taxes every time we buy a gallon of gas which goes to the federal government, if they are unable to manage that money properly and have it spent for the purpose it was intended. We do not pay gasoline tax so that President Obama can fly on Air Force One a couple of states away to give a speech. He can take the bus, or his favorite high-speed train. Please consider all this and think on it from the perspective of a laid off concrete construction worker, not me, but that lady's husband who is unemployed. Slot Game Online.
