Nobody said they are completely interchangeable. The Mayor said some training is required. Putting tar and asphalt on roads and repairing sections of sidewalk does not take a lot of training. last I checked there isn't a single college or vo-tech course for either job.
it's the myopic view of many politicians to only address the immediate problem (what's in front of their face).

Prior administrations lowered tax rates and claimed they were doing us a favor by underfunding the pensions.
