One the biggest problems I had with this show was Ray's treatment of Bridget. I don't know if the expectations of Project Manager were ever spelled out for her before the role was offered, but if I were in her shoes, I would have assumed that being Project Manager was more in line with being handed "the keys to the city"--a ceremonial role. The fact that they expected her to act as foreman (and disregard her other real-life responsibilities, even when she brought them up) was callous and irresponsible.
Also, I have done construction work. I currently work in a heavy industrial environment. Safety was and is of the utmost concern. From what I could see, some of what they asked Bridget to do was downright dangerous, and no one with any experience should ever ask a young girl (without proper boots and proper safety training?) to go crawling around on a half-finished surface doing construction.
