Notice that the supervisors are better dressed than the shovelers- they must be the guvment employees.
I thought for a second that the poor kid nearest the camera had 2 guys watching, and a third pointing at where to dig- but then I noticed the pointer had a shovel.
I remember the motto when I worked for the Highway Dept. as a lad- "If one guy can't do it, get 6 or 7 guys to not do it." What's orange and sleeps 3? A county pickup. . .
