Oakland Bay Bridge to get a Made in China Label due to Obama Union Policies

SHANGHAI — Talk about outsourcing.

Why?  Even though Obama is on his “keep jobs in America” tour his policies speak louder.  If any state accepts Government funds for Road projects they must pay Union wages.

California is in a bit of a pinch right now and after doing the calculations they found that it was cheaper to finance the project, have it made in China, and shipped to America.

How much will they save?  oh about a half a billion dollars?

This from the New York Times
At a sprawling manufacturing complex here, hundreds of Chinese laborers are now completing work on the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge.

Next month, the last four of more than two dozen giant steel modules — each with a roadbed segment about half the size of a football field — will be loaded onto a huge ship and transported 6,500 miles to Oakland. There, they will be assembled to fit into the eastern span of the new Bay Bridge.

The project is part of China’s continual move up the global economic value chain — from cheap toys to Apple iPads to commercial jetliners — as it aims to become the world’s civil engineer.
