A man died this morning after falling through the roof at a New York motorcycle shop owned by "American Chopper" star Paul Teutul Jr. ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

American Chopper

We're told the man -- a construction worker not employed by Paul Jr. Designs -- was working on the roof when the accident occurred.

The Orange County Sheriff's Office confirmed that cops are still on scene. We're told someone at the shop called 911 around 8:30 AM to report that someone "fell through the roof."

We're told none of the regular shop employees were inside the building at the time.

At 8:30 A.M. None of the regular shop employees would be at work anyways - They are always late.

To Kirkham, the union steward:



Labor unions were needed 100 years ago. Today you should look at Greece, the most unionized country in the EU, to see the modern impact of labor unions. It is not pretty.



Re. the worker who died at the bike shop: RIP, and condolences to his family and friends on their loss.

If I ever need to buy votes, rig an election, illegally intimidate the electorate, or crush a healthy economy, I'll give you a call. This is too easy.
