Guys ... I am commenting on your condemnation of legislation that seemingly is "barbarian" (I think that's the term you used) w/respect to construction workers. Yet you cannot connect the simplest dots to the next common complaint ... "housing has become unaffordable". There are HUNDREDS of man-hours in even the simplest of structures. You are sure changing work rules that increase costs somehow improves affordability? BTW, I have watched the daily activities of construction crews (in St. Pete they are building in the lot just across from the condo in which I live). Managers who are interested in success are VERY cognizant of the worker's safety and work conditions. Please, let's support governing from the center versus your declaration of "barbarism".
