The workers, paid $41 an hour, want assurances their positions won’t be sent elsewhere when they get sick or retire, according to Craig Merrilees, a spokesman for the union.

Philly is a real union town. Construction unions actively block any independent contractors. The average salary for these unions...........$65/hr.

the average median family income is about $55,000 a year, or less than $30 an hour....everybody can't be above average!

well, unless you are in a union...
