With so many states in dire need to control their budgets, a lot of talk has private flagging companies replacing police on highway construction and maintenance details here. But the police unions have stifled all competition by pushing through laws – such as towns and cities paying for a project must use cops. And a state law that says flaggers must be paid the outrageous fee of $45 per hour plus insurance and other cost. Obviously that makes it all but impossible for a private company to make a profit, never mind break even. And those are just a few examples in our system of greed at any cost to society that has filtered down to even police departments. Do you here that roar of corruption again?
