Pugh obviously had what we used to refer to as a sudden rush of brains to the head. (I may be being a little too generous.) I’m pretty damn sure Mayor Pugh was considering the sudden increase in cost of the city’s union-scale employees; union contracts are frequently tied to a percentage over the prevailing minimum wage.
City’s powerful unions have used violence, vandalism to dominate the building sector. Now, they have drones.
It obviously increases the level of intimidation,” says one Philadelphia resident who’s been subjected to union intimidation in the past and asked to remain unnamed for fear of retribution. “How do you prove that someone is flying a drone over you? Police can identify a car sitting across from your house or a man sitting across from your children taking pictures. But a drone– you don’t know who’s flying it. That’s more scary. And I think they will use it in that way.”
Another good reason to shoot drones out of the sky.
