8:35 am
paycheck than the governor of our state. >> i was getting $13.50 an hour. kathy: frank and pete were shocked by that $75 an hour rate. they worked for the bridge for about a decade until they were laid off last year. you hear somebody's getting paid $75 an hour. what went through your mind? >> what's wrong with this picture? kathy: here's what happened. that massive increase pay increase kicked in when the state began maintenance on the bridge and bridge house. the state said that triggered the prevailing wage law which requires workers be paid a wage found in existing union contracts, and that rate is usually much higher than the going rate in the market. >> >> blynman bridge is a poster
8:36 am
kathy: greg sullivan says massachusetts is one of only a handful of states that sets the prevailing wage that way. the median hourly wage nationally for a bridge tender is $22.10 an hour. >> it just seems like a huge waste. >> massachusetts is in a tough financial situation right now. when you see it wasted on something like this, it makes you pull your hair out. kathy: 5 investigates found even this pig is feeding from the taxpayer trough. we discovered one of those bringing her breakfast during the workday more than an hour away from the job site. the bridge is maintained through a contract with the state department of transportation. a massdot spokesperson told us because a contractor is involved in the work, they're obligated to pay the prevailing wage. they also told us bridge operators perform other duties on-site, but our investigation found them just sitting in the
8:37 am
>> it just doesn't seem to make sense to me. kathy: the total cost to operate the bridge for the first six months of the year was almost half a million dollars. as far as that pig is concerned, a lawyer told us workers do feed the pig, but not during work hours. but they told massdot a very different story, that the employee we saw was on vacation. the state is now reviewing all of the work logs. kathy curran, 5 investigates. doug: kathy, thank you. the coast guard rescues two boaters in boston harbor. silent passage ran aground near lovells island yesterday. they tried to wait for high tide but the high winds made that plan too dangerous. the coast guard sent a helicopter to lift the men off the boat to safety. nobody was hurt. meanwhile, a tragedy on a new hampshire lake. people watching from shore say a 62-year-old strafford woman appeared to be having trouble paddling through the choppy waters on bow lake when her kayak went over. crews say the winds were gusting
