ABC News reports that US roads and bridges are being built or rebuilt, not by any of the millions of Americans out of work, but by Chinese companies using Chinese workers. One project alone was worth more than $7 billion and could have created 3,000 American jobs.
The companies are owned by the Chinese government, which among other things means they don’t pay their workers as much as American workers make. There’s a suggestion in that, that the unions have priced US companies out of these jobs, but ABC doesn’t follow up on that possibility.
