Where are American Workers? Indiana Toll Road, operated by Cintra/Macquarie SUBCONTRACTS to Spanish company

Let's see. American property, American Roads, Run by Spanish and Australian company. And when it comes to improvements, does this Spanish/Australian company decide to hire AMERICANS or AMERICAN companies to build the control centers on the tollway? Why... NO. Cintra/Macquarie awarded  THEIR first contract to... a Spanish company, Indra.

Spanish company Indra just won an $18 million contract to upgrade the open-tolling system on the Indiana Toll Road and build two control centers.

The contract was awarded in Indra by the Spanish and Australian consortium that now operates the toll road on a 75-year lease.

An Indra press release says the contract paves the way for the company to land lucrative contracts in other states, including Florida and Texas.

Oh. How nice. We can now look forward to this company doing the work on our Trans Texas Corridor (IF WE DON'T STOP IT ... NOW... CALL YOUR CONGRESSMEN) instead of American companies.

I already commented the other day that MY bank, Compass, has been bought up by a Spanish company and if I'm not mistaken, I recall one of the people who spoke up against the TTC in Hood County saying that HER bank, some other bank, was also owned by a Spanish company now (Yup, I was right-wrote about this before-Texas Bancshares). I am going to change banks, but it worries me a bit that I might have to do a whole lot of background checking on other banks in the area that I might *think* were local but actually aren't.

Why don't we just lie down on our public highways that aren't going to be fixed up once the TTC is in place and let this government roll right over us.. and then they can sell our carcasses to a funeral home that's run by some other country. Or maybe I should complain to the newspaper in Stephenville? Oh, that's right. It's owned by Macquarie now.

Do you think we'll come to a point where we decide to loudly TELL our government we do NOT want to have all our assets owned and operated by FOREIGN COMPANIES???????????????????????
