James,
In Chicago there would be at least twice as many guys, one guy working and half of the rest reading the newspaper or in the tavern.
So you are getting your moneys worth there.

I think the union rules require that many road guards to prevent motorists from driving under the tree being cut.

That looks about right for a civil service project...

...but I thought Ontario had privatized their hydro.

Here in the state of Virginia they have welded 2 legs to the bottom of the shovel so they will be self-standing thus eliminating one third of the state roads workforce.

Now for the person that said they may be gullible. That simply cannot be because that word does not appear in any dictionary or in Microsoft Spell check.

There are openings for you hustling eager beavers. If you ever worked this kind of job you might understand that until the asphalt gets there and all is ready you just have to wait and then shovel hot crap quickly. Try it some time-but you have to get out from behind your computers! Idid it for three summers-made me go to the university.

This was our city utilities. There was a bucket truck, three dump trucks, a wood chipper, and a front end loader. They trimmed TWO trees and then left. Coffee shop must have been closed. Three people could have done the work very efficiently.
