Default Saw something new yesterday - more jobs eliminated

Drove by a road construction site and instead of 2 guys (or women) with the stop/slow manual sign, there was 1 guy with a remote. He was controlling 2 portable traffic signals. Each had a red and a yellow light. When the red light was on a barrier (much like a RR xing) dropped down to block traffic. I don't know if they are battery or gas powered but I guess paying for insurance, SS, healthcare, 401k, workman's comp, etc., etc., etc. (not to mention dealing with low wage construction worker types) is just not worth it anymore.
