You ignore the fact that he can be held criminally liable. Let a skyscraper fall and you're talking casualties in the 5 digit range. There is no way to stop that avalanche of outrage. In fact, I'd be surprised if the engineer didn't have to be taken into protective custody for his own safety. The people responsible for building safety will catch hell too. Catastrophic destruction gets catastrophic response.

I tried explaing to one of my coworkers in that same situation how he was working for less than minimum wage. We sat down, figured up what it cost him to go to work in gas and such and other expenses and he was basically working for about 4 dollars an hour. He retired a month later. Turns out we didn't figure it right, his taxes dropped a lot and he ended up only losing about 150 dollars a month. He had a craft business going on the side and he started doing that real heavy and now makes about twice what he did when he worked with me and he banks his retirement check.
