“You don’t have to be licensed for demolition in New York City, so you have guys that do not know what they are doing,” Mr. Tortorella said. “When the city is this busy with construction, you wind up with a lot of unsupervised demolition and construction work going on.”
Hiring illegals who have no construction training promotes collapses as well. But let's not allow a few dead bodies to get in the way of "progress."
