Big Dig workers caught napping on the job

Apparently the sound of dripping water and falling chunks of concrete isn't enough to keep some workers on Boston's Big Dig project awake. Perhaps, it sounded like a spring rainstorm to them.

A recent investigation conducted by The Boston Herald found workers napping, reading and even joyriding while they were on the clock and being paid $49 per hour.

The Herald surveyed work sites on the project over five days and found heavy equipment operators sleeping, reading and sitting idle for hours at a time on the job. Some were even sleeping in full public view.

The workers were employed by construction company Bechtel National, which recently received a contract from the Federal Emergency Management Agency to build dry housing for hurricane victims in Mississippi.
