  1. I count 15 supervisors and one person actually performing manual labor. Sounds about right.

    However, they seem to be missing the guy with the clipboard, documenting their efforts.

  2. Socialism at work thanks to our tax dollars. It reminds me of Trinidad and Tobago and my first visit to a friend’s office, a brand new minister of the pro-Indian party that, for the first time since 1965, had won the national elections over the pro-Black party (founded by well known marxist Eric Williams). Contiguous to the minister’s office there were two secretarial rooms, a tiny one where two real secretaries worked full time, and a big one where about 12 extra “secretaries” did nothing but chat and read newspapers and novels. He told me that was one of the many problems he had inherited.

  3. The first thing that I thought of when I saw the pic was that it was a crime scene investigation underway. Since that’s a very labor intensive activity it would make sense. Landscaping in the middle of the night is rather odd.


  4. Union labor + overtime differential + weekend differential.

    You do the math.

    It makes perfect sense, when you think about it.

  5. I suspect these are work crews doing community service in lieu of jail time. Hence, nothing strenuous and make work jobs.
