$43/hr for a laborer. I could only imagine what a heavy equipment operator must make...

Credit to your aunt for putting in the extra hours.

My point is that if there was a free market, that the labor costs would dramatically decrease. You have artificially inflated wages due to unions and Government regulations (Davis-Bacon). I bet you could still find people to do the job at $20 an hour plus benefits. This type of stuff irks me because all of us pay taxes and this is waste. People keep crying that we don't have money for infrastructure, but those same people turn a blind eye to the high costs of labor of these projects.

Prevailing wages are easily seen on the Illinois website.

A laborer base is 40.20/hr

Operating engineer varies from 42-56/hr

Your absolutely right and that is fucking crazy imo.
You have laborers doing a job that requires little to no skill at all only making a few bucks less than a guy who operates heavy equipment....smfh.
Same with a majority of the trades, laborers are right there with them.

And to those commenting about the flag holder person...FUCK that job! I always think to myself when I pass those women, they'd have to pay me double what I make now to do that job. Requires no skill, but you're just standing there all day in the elements doing nothing. Time goes by very SLOW when you're not doing anything. I think I'd probably go crazy doing that job...

I agree.

It's one of the worst jobs. You stand there bored to absolute death, hot or freezing and in harms way of idiot drivers who could care less about human life other than their own. Back in the 90's when we did our own flagging and road closures. Once in a while I would be assigned to stop and control traffic. As soon as I got to our job site. I'd give that shit job to the lazy turd who hates working hard and I work on the drill rig.

So yeah. I would need a shit ton of money to flag and control traffic.
