RE STU Bykofsky's recent column about nonunion carpenters:

I drive through Delaware County every day, and I see new developements going up all the time. I also see selling prices of $300-$400,000 for these homes. If I were buying one, I'd feel better knowing it was built by well-trained, highly skilled union carpenters, not by someone who was picking fruit (no offense) two months ago.

But to these yuppies today, it's more important what they pay than that the dwelling be well built. These homes are nothing but plastic siding, Tyvek, particle board, insulation and dry wall. I guess it's not true that you get what you pay for.
