^^^yah i kinda agree with some of that. but theres also a difference of being a herro and getting the job done quick and nice, and being a worker that this type of work is just a job and you take your time. so as being in a union i would guess that the job took more time than it should have.
I just did this type of job with one other guy and it took 6 hours, but you could back up to the unit. And we are very busy and get paid for the job so theres some motivation there.
? cant tell for the hours you are saying but yes if it was your company and there was 1 grand in you pocket at the end of the day, 8 hours to do the work is plenty of time
