92. I really want to know who approved it? We need to dig around.
Thanks for the information on that....here are some quotes about the SF Bay Bridge.
"Despite the American union complaints, former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, a Republican, strongly backed the project and even visited Zhenhuas plant last September, praising the workers that are building our Bay Bridge.

"Pan Zhongwang, a 55-year-old steel polisher, is a typical Zhenhua worker. He arrives at 7 a.m. and leaves at 11 p.m., often working seven days a week. He lives in a company dorm and earns about $12 a day.

It used to be $9 a day, now its $12, he said Wednesday morning, while polishing one of the decks for the new Bay Bridge. Everything is getting more expensive. They should raise our pay.

From this article....
