If you knew something about construction and construction work you will find out that all construction companies, union or non-union have an opportunities to bid on jobs. I worked for many years in the construction business and I went to all the cities around San Diego County getting a bid package and putting in a bid for those projects including projects in Chula Vista. I believe that people that are talking in favor of Prop G to have a clue of what they're talking about. The title "Fair and Open Comaptition" sounds great, heck, if I didn't know what's about it I would probably fall for it. I worked for non-union companies and believe me, wages are minimum and no benefits, what is that going to do for Chula Vista? More Medicare petitions, food stamps, etc. that's where your tax dollars go when non-union construction companies get to perform work. So, If you have not made up your mind on Prop G I would really think about where your tax dollars are going. Are they really staying locally or are your tax dollars are going back to Sacramento to help fund for the services that the State offer to poverty level paid employees. If you live in Chula Vista by the way, you know that you cannot even rent a studio when you are only earning minimum wage. One last thing, construction is semi-seasonal, if it rains, you don't work, if you don't work, you don't get paid.
