Why shouldn't it be Chinese labor? They're being paid with Chinese money.

No there is more money in keeping it illegal.

Look at what happened to Alcohol after they ended Prohibition... Once it was decriminalized it just was no longer profitable compared to when it was illegal.

Yes, it does!!! I tried to find a transcript of the ABC video, but did not. It must just be the tip of an iceberg. Additional info.

Wiki: Eastern span replacement of the San Francisco – Oakland Bay Bridge

"The entire project, which will require 100,000 tons of structural steel, is now expected to cost $6.2 billion (as of July 2005), up from a 1997 estimate of $1.1 billion (for a simple viaduct) and a March 2003 estimate of $2.6 billion that included a tower span."

Nothing like driving 100 ft on a steel bridge made by China men. Wow, I hope they put a made in China sign on the approaches.

I wouldn't want to be on the new Bay Bridge in the next shaker as most of the steel and reinforcements come from China
