Give it up. Your prejudice and disrespect for public workers is showing.Not even with the removal of fuel with an army of volunteers from the local community? I can see where the public sector unions might object to honest work.
When I first started, we evil gubmint workers did do precommercial thinning on a large scale. Then a certain anti-gubmint president came into power and stopped that. It was all to be contracted out and contracting actually cost more than having us do the work. It also started the race to the bottom. Contractors kept hiring a cheaper workforce, and one was even found to be keeping folks at work against their will. Local people were not hired, as was promised and were bid out of the contracts as they could not legitimately work for such a little amount of money.
That's your honest work. The race to the bottom.
