No problem with that, right? 😉 The feds, in their infinite wisdom, make the minimum pay for these jobs three times what we normally pay our installers. Reason? None that I can see, as our journeymen make a comfortable living on their normal pay.
    PS- They did make us purchase a pricey sign which must be displayed on all jobsites, proclaiming in English and Spanish, the ridiculous amount of money our govt. has no problem removing from our taxpaying pockets to pay these inflated pay scales.
