The #BetterKCI New Airport Labor Debate: Minority Hiring Stays Losing?!?!

Another look at discussion of the new Kansas City airport from a firm that clings to the desperate hope that Burns & Mac along with union leaders & the heavies aren't killing their BILLION DOLLAR DEAL:

Edgemoor still faces two hurdles in KCI build - labor and the city council

A meeting was held Tuesday to discuss the labor side of the issue.

Come on people you want a bunch of lazy minorities building an airport using baling wire and duct tape?

That’s the only way it will only cost $1billion. No union crybabies. Just hire Mexicans to build it. They will work way cheaper than the union crybabies. Then when it’s finished, we have all the Mexicans in one place, to be rounded up and deported.

Public works projects are always pork barrel projects designed to win votes first and foremost. If the project that was promised to the taxpayers materializes, that's a bonus.

These "Women and Minority-owned businesses" are only shells set up by Dunn and Clarkson with somebody getting a few bucks to front them.

It's been how the Giants in the area have been getting Federal Contracts for decades.

Minority owned means less skilled, is that what we want building our gateway to the world ?

You realize that these are always only set aside "goals". This means that the day before the bid date the prime will fax out or email sub bids. Typically these bids cannot be put together on such short notice, and most subs will decline to bid. The prime can then stick that in their file as a "refusal to bid" and still meet the set-aside requirements. Its a gigantic scam unless language is inserted making it mandatory. So far the only term I've seen mentioned is the "goals" which is worth as much as the text on the screen.
