Boy, I shouldn't do this.
Most people are so hardened in their train of thought dynamite couldn't change their way of thinking.
But, here goes...

One question;

Why bash Union surveyors for making good pay for a dangerous, high stress, time critical, precision demanding, accuracy unforgiving job, when nearly EVERYONE here agrees surveyors in general aren't paid enough?

This is a futile request, but can we just stick to 'surveyors' in reply?

And let me put it in this light; I am responsible for the surveying required to design and implement $20 Billion dollars worth of construction.

What is that worth an hour?
