lets just say you are a mech contractor and you bid on a large job. say 40 million mechanical. you win the bid.
you now need labor to do the job. 20 fitters, 20 plumbers, 20 sheetmetal men. where do you get the additional labor?
did you have 60 guys sitting around waiting for the job to start? do you put an add in the paper? wanted 60 skilled
building tradesman for a 18 month job! and start interviewing? union contractors use the union halls to get as much qualified labor they need. how do non union contractors deal with the changing levels of labor they need for projects?
