What’s wrong with scaffolding?
As we get used to the idea that scaffolding will be used in our daily lives, we might have forgotten to ask what it’s actually made of, and where it came from.
As part of the redesign of New York City’s crumbling subway lines, the MTA decided to use scaffolding to keep the stations from collapsing.
A scaffolding structure like this one was built by the American Company of Industrial Workers, the union that represents construction workers in New York.
They had to pay for it out of their union dues.
It’s a classic example of the kind of labor rights protection that New York’s unions have fought for in recent years.
In recent years, the government and the public have gotten better at using public money to protect workers.
New York state passed laws that make it easier to sue employers when their wages or benefits are not enough to meet the basic needs of their workers.
And some states, like Washington, have begun to pass laws requiring employers to pay their workers at least $15 an hour.
But for decades, New York has resisted a movement to reform its laws and to improve working conditions.
For years, New Yorkers have been waiting for the city to act.
Last year, the mayor of New Jersey, Cory Booker, said he wanted to reform the state’s labor laws and was hoping to get legislation passed this year to do just that.
But there’s still no agreement in Congress, and some Republicans in the House are blocking any progress.
So now we have to wait for New York to make a big announcement, something that hasn’t happened since the city’s last major collapse in 2000.
The New York State Assembly voted last week to raise the minimum wage to $15.
But in the face of the rising cost of living, it’s unclear how much the city can raise the wage to.
Some unions have called for the $15 rate to be raised by as much as 25 percent, which would require a big jump in wages for New Yorkers to make ends meet.
The mayor, who has said he supports the $10 minimum wage, said the $14.25 minimum is “fair and just.”
That’s a figure that is used by many cities and states around the country.
But it’s not the minimum workers should be paying.
As a matter of fairness, a higher minimum wage will put more money in workers’ pockets, since more people will be able to afford it.
It also makes it more likely that the city will increase the number of public transit options for commuters and make it more expensive for businesses to fire workers and shut down their operations.
The city’s current minimum wage is $7.25, but the city has already made it $7 an hour for many workers.
The governor’s proposal would raise the city minimum wage from $7 to $9.50.
It will likely be vetoed by Democratic Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver.
“This proposal has a big hole in it,” said Daniel Rieckhoff, a professor of public policy at the City University of New Orleans who studies labor relations.
The minimum wage needs to be much higher than $7, he said, but that doesn’t mean it should be higher.
“It is the least that the state and city should be offering, because the real issue is not the amount of money the city is offering, but how much it is taking from New Yorkers.”
