Weekly Poll

November 6 to November 12, 2016

Some subcontractors working on the new hockey arena in Detroit are facing fines for not hiring enough local workers; contractors have said they simply can't find skilled help in the area. Are local-hiring mandates on big jobs like this a good idea, or unfair?

More items for Good Technical Practice

Good idea. These big projects should boost the local economy and create jobs, not bring in all out-of-state labor temporarily.
Good idea, but only if they're backed up by government investments in training and apprenticeship.
Bad idea. A job of this scale needs the best possible workers, and if they can't be found nearby, a contractor shouldn't be penalized for looking elsewhere.
