Lost Coast Brewery unfair to local contractors and construction workers
Lost Coast has contracted with Hansen-Rice, an Idaho based construction company to build their new brewery. Hansen-Rice has subcontracted work to Cone Plumbing from Yreka, Ca.
Cone Plumbing does not pay AREA STANDARD wages and benefits to their plumber employees. SUBSTANDARD wages contribute to the erosion of our local economy. Cone Plumbing does not participate in our local California State Apprenticeship Program. Not participating in local training programs deny training opportunities for local workers in this community. Contracting opportunities and local construction jobs are important to us. Qualified local contractors and workers desperately need jobs. Dollars earned here by local people circulate here.
Lost Coast Brewery, by hiring out of area contractors has demonstrated a lack of concern for this community.
Please do not patronize Lost Coast Brewery to show your support for local construction workers.
