What a weasel Stringer is. He thinks the Buildings Department shouldn't be responsible for one of their primary responsibilities (ensuring safety at construction sites)? Because it's hard to do? Let's close down the department, then.

The union non-union issue is a bunch of pro-union BS propaganda. What's the breakdown of violations between union and non-union companies?
