TV, Radio, Internet...dishing dirt since 2001
OSHA would have a fit if that happened today (if it even happened at all, that is). As far as heights go, I've always heard that many American Indians do not have a fear of heights at all. I don't know if there's any truth in that statement or not.
Got a laugh out of that! The first thing I thought of when I saw that picture was OSHA.
You are correct, 2:33. American Indians are among the greatest and safest tower climbers in the world. Many broadcasters owe a debt of gratitude for te fearless tower climbers who change beacons, obstruction lights, painting and riveters.
They all worked so hard to build it up, while Democrats are now tearing it down and giving it away to 3rd world invaders....just as long as they keep voting them in office.
That picture was taken during the construction of 30 Rockefeller Center in New York, also known as the home of NBC.
That picture was staged by professional photographers that worked the high steel for the newspapers and took high risks to get the shots.There are a few of those guys that were brothers and uncles posing for that shot.There is a documentary on Netflif called Men at Lunch explaining this and many other shots in the Rockefeller photo archives.
I have worked in construction for 40 years and it is much safer than when I started out. OSHA rules may be a pain at time but us workers are a lot less likely to get injured or killed on a job. OSHA has been a good thing for labor.
Hey 3:40pm, t he GOP has been chiefly responsible for the continued assault on the Middle Class of this country, stripping our muscle by allowing massive deregulation which has led to an epidemic of downsizing of American jobs, by 'offshoring' to third world countries such as India. You're complaining about the 'Third World Invaders,' but how about the titans of American business who have consolidated their holdings and are ruining this country to fatten their own corpulent portfolios? Unfortunately, America has become a 'Shareholder' society, and people are more interesting in making 10 percent on their investments that than are in making this country a better place for everyone. Selfish, short sided people who elect obstructionists like Rick Perry, Scott Walker and Ted Cruz are to blame. So stop blaming labor and illegal immigrants, and look at the real 'villains' in this picture; the Titans of American business. People like the Koch Brothers, who have basically bought parts of Congress. Disgraceful behavior by the GOP, and then they have the gall to accuse Obama of not doing a good job!The current GOP in Congress and the Senate may go down as the most divisive, destructive, unAmerican, (they think barter and bargaining and compromise are foreign words in the American political world...man are they loopy or what!?) and uncompromising people to ever represent this country. God help us from these cretins who are ruining America today.
