    Care to give us an update on the gr8 wall of harbor road. What an embarrassment, been a couple weeks haven’t seen know one working there,except the guys getting paid over time to direct traffic. Outsource it, if you feel it necessary to keep the guys that sit in the trailer all day on the payroll leave them there.
