It's no exaggeration...It's QUITE LITERAL!
Take notice - You will NEVER see more than 50% of any State road crew working at one time, and usually more like 25%. Take a look at all of the workers on the crew the next time you pass by road work and you will see a group of several guys leaning on shovels, or one foot up on something while they chat, a few guys sitting in the cabs of their trucks, and maybe one or two actually working. I've been noticing this for years. It's uncanny. How is this allowed? I've worked in construction of many different forms for many many years. I've seen a lot of slacking in my time, but nothing like a state road crew. It's kind of irritating when you realize that your tax dollars are paying their wages.
