Just to be clear, I would never advocate for people not getting compensated appropriately for their work !!!  Never would I want that.  I am trying to look at the labour market from a different perspective.  I just dont understand why the need for government jobs do be handled differently than the private sector,  that all.

That was a big jump on conclusions...

Well said, and a sad state of affairs.

How far into the winter can they do utility work like that? Especially for curing concrete and laying asphalt...

If you heat a tent around the concrete you can do it in the dead of winter if you really wanted to.

The sign was flashing about the closure when I drove past on Tuesday morning. Not sure why they left it so late before releasing this advisory.
