That's a good point, Bill.
Oregon is a right-to-work state, Bobert, but the police Davis-Bacon and Prevailing Wage jobs pretty closely, so some industries pay a lot better than others for similar work.
I bid on a job last week where part of the contract called for harvesting dead timber--killed by bark beattles--and part of it was road construction. It had two different wage structures. The road builders made almost twice as much as the loggers. The loggers' accident (read that death) rate is probably three or four times higher than the road builders.
It ain't fair a'tall.
