NYC Cracks Down On WTC Worker Drinking

NEW YORK, (UPI) — New York Port Authority officials said they are cracking down on workday drinking by construction workers at Ground Zero.

PA chief Pat Foye said investigators are being added to the unit and the budget for the inspector general is being increased to crack down on daytime drinking by workers at the World Trade Center site, the New York Post reported Monday.

Foye said more than 20 construction workers have already lost their credentials after being busted by undercover agents at bars near the site.

“Look, vodka and steel beams and a construction site don’t mix,” Foye said. “We are not going to tolerate it. This has been a longtime problem in the construction industry. But this is the most complicated construction project anywhere.”
