Infrastructure technology

It is not often I get to highlight some technology and take a swipe at Unions, well with this post, I get to do both!

The reference article is about a automated pot hole patching system that allows most pot holes to be repaired quickly and efficiently by a single driver/operator that will not be allowed to be used in some municipalities because of the local government unions. Instead crews (with an 's' meaning more than one) are paid in the neighbourhood of $28 an hour to repair pot holes with hand tools.
