The American, Canadian, and Mexican governments are planning to revamp existing interstates and highways to create a ten-lane superhighway running from Mexico to Canada.
One of the primary motivations for this project is to circumvent the Teamsters union by routing containers originating overseas through Mexico. Just goes to show what a stranglehold the unions have on this country. It’s easier to slap together 2,000 miles of ten-lane highway than it is to negotiate a fair labor contract with the Teamsters. It also indicates that the U.S. government believes the kickbacks that are normally paid to do business in Mexico are less than those normally paid to U.S. dock bosses.
