Show host Ed “Flash” Ferenc and Hager talked about residency requirements and how they help local communities put their residents to work. These requirements are often used on major public projects and also can be included in Project Labor Agreements.

PLAs, Hager said, are a useful tool used to ensure a project is completed on time and on budget, helping to eliminate labor issues and ensure only highly skilled and highly trained workers are on a jobsite.

Hager also provided updates on potential projects in central Ohio, including the Sofidel Paper Plant and a proposed NTE Energy Project in Pickaway County.

This conversation led them to a discussion about safety on the jobsite and how So-Called “Right to Work” laws can make jobsites more dangerous.
