Those were the words that came out of the mouth of John Hutchings, a legislator for New York's Broome County, who is also a construction market representative for the Laborers International Union for upstate New York. He is also an executive officer of the Central New York Labor Federation, AFL-CIO, according to his bio.
Project Veritas actors, who portrayed leaders of a make-believe company called Earth Supply and Renewal, captured the remark in a meeting they obtained with Hutchings and other union leaders to discuss the possibility (again, this was an act) of winning government grants or contracts for their work.
Then Hutchings chimed in.
"You know the Green Jobs, Green New York? he told the actors, referring to a $112-million state weatherization program. "Between us, a lot of it is bullsh--.
"You know, a lot of that's going for stuff that...." Hutchings paused, then raised his hands in the air with a puzzled expression that emphasized the waste of taxpayer dollars and said, "What are we talking about?
"Well I think the key thing is, even if it's bullsh--, I think as long as people are working, that's not bull," Hutchings responded. "You know what I mean? Then you're doing a service."
Then after detailing their political connections and three lobbying firms for both Democrats and Republicans in New York and Albany, Hutchings and Tocci explained how they "push their agenda through" and see that bills that create largely wasteful programs are produced.
Hutchings - apparently recognizing the youth and inexperience he believed the Veritas actors had - cited an example of how Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver might see a grant approved to do the type of work that Earth Supply and Renewal could do, but would not specifically earmark it for their company.
"He would approve a grant to do that type of stuff," Hutchings explained, "then we'd have to go out and find places where to dig."
"We can figure out the other stuff," Hutchings interrupted. So the implication is that the unions, as a regular practice, often pursue pots of money for which there is no practical purpose or need, and then find creative ways to justify the spending after the fact.
In December 2010, after he signed the bill into law, New York Gov.
"It's awful hard for anyone to vote against a jobs bill right now," Hutchings said as the meeting closed.

John Hutchings, director of the Laborers' International Union of North America (LIUNA) New York State Laborers' Organizing Fund (NYSLOF), explains:
Right now it's all about jobs. It's awful hard for anybody to vote against like a jobs bill right now …
He agrees that even if there are sites where this ditch digging and filling has no environmental program, legislators will decide, "it's a jobs program for the laborers. And when some of the Earth Supply and Renewal "employees" explain that they literally dig a ditch, then fill it up again, Hutchings says, "It sounds like, it almost is exactly the same as where we were with Green Jobs, Green New York.
And Hutchings adds:
Hutchings then explains the economic theory behind all of this:
Says Hutchings, "It's a win-win for everybody. Everybody understands that part of it. Especially the unions, who will be including "employees" of Earth Supply and Renewal in their collective bargaining from now on.
Finally, Hutchings talks about union buddies in government:
