A reader tipped us off that they spotted a protest today at the site of the building collapse at 22nd & Market. Apparently, Jurich Inc, a demolition contractor, has been hired to clear out the site, but some union guys don’t believe that their workers are being paid a fair wage. As you can see, there’s still so much debris to clear out.
In a city where dozens, nay, hundreds of projects are currently underway using non-union labor, you’d think these guys would have the good taste to protest someplace other than the site of a terrible tragedy. You’d imagine that they’d find some other place to make their point, whether you agree with it or not. You’d hope that they could respect this site and allow this grim work to come to a rapid conclusion.
But nah, why would they do that?
