How to use foreman in a sentence?

  1. Mark Thompson of Colorado Carpenters:

    When I approached the foreman for United Builders Service, I asked him how many workers he had on his crew. He looked me straight in the eye and said, ‘I don’t know,’ we pray there are no other workers missing, but how can the professionals be certain without an accurate count to start with?

  2. Gary Craven:

    He's a human being like the rest of us, instead of just a Democrat, i've read his book. I've listened to him speak going as back as far as the Barack Obama campaign. I worked 40 years as an electric utility lineman, a foreman, and I understand that experience counts. And some of these people, I don't believe have reached the level of experience to where they can handle the job that Trump is going to leave us.

  3. Jerry Nadler:

    The Constitution prescribes a special oath for the senators when Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer sit as a trial in impeachment. They have to pledge to do impartial justice, and here you have the majority leader of the Senate, in effect, the foreman of the jury, saying they're going to work hand and glove with the defense attorney, now, that's a violation of the oath they're about to take, and it's a complete subversion of the constitutional scheme.

  4. Ruth Gichana:

    My foreman comes and tells me like, ‘Ruth you can’t go back, it shows that you are pregnant,’.
