NEW KCI STAYS LOSING SKETCHY MINORITY HIRING QUOTAS!!!
The new Kansas City airport was built on broken promises.
Officials said that it wouldn't cost taxpayers a dime and that wasn't true even before a great many local voters were tricked.
Here's one more failure as the airline industry is now, basically, a clandestinely government owned biz operating over legal front company branding.
The only relevant passage of a dead-tree report aside from posturing at City Hall:
"In a presentation to City Council members last month, Edgemoor said it was on target to meet those goals. The developer said minority-owned firms made up approximately 16.4% of the construction work already paid for, and women-owned firms represented 12.9%. A City Hall report confirmed those numbers.
"That’s below Edgemoor’s pledge: 20% for minorities and 15% for women."
And of course this inspired a litany of council questions, bold statements and promises to do better. Again.
