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.

There is by now no reason why "minorities" and women led construction firms can't bid on projects without preferences. If they have not figured the business out in the 20+ years that they have had set-asides, they never will.

Why the fuck should they provide contracts to minorities and women just because they have non-white skin and cunts

that is fucking stupid

The best companies with the greatest ability to execute at the greatest value should win all the contracts

I don't care if they are 100% women, 100% minority or whatever

best overall should win. Just because you have a twat and your skin isn't white shouldn't grant you any special privileges. Fucking stupid

Sheeeit cracker, they know the biz as well as anyone. It's all about breaking the mostly white ol boy network.

It's really amazing that you would make yourself look so dumb by pretending to not know that.

We don't even need this anymore. Flight schedules are off 40% and it will be years before they get close to what they were before. Thankfully we are not paying for a 2 billion dollar empty airport like our empty new hotel.

if we're not paying for it and broke airlines aren't paying for it, who is?

If you really insist on having a bad airport, just let cunts and minorities build the whole thing. Grand opening 2038.

So, being required to hire minorities & women, they failed to meet the quotas?

How many do you think they would have hired if there had been no quotas?

"Best" companies?

When white men claim they are losing their rights, what they're really bitching about is the realization that they are losing their White Privilege.

It's become an entitlement.

Oh bLIEron, you’re such an idiot, these minority hires are gibme jobs to friends and family members. They’re ghost companys with one or two members that get paid taxpayer money for doing nothing and that drives the price of doing the job through the roof. Are you really that stupid?

Thank god white people are showing up and working on the airport otherwise it would never get built

Oh, I just remembered this, edgemoor said they could get those minority numbers the city wanted but they would have to bring in minorities from outside the city because they couldn’t get minorities from kc to work. Mayor mcdrinkerson told them no, they have to hire from within kc limits so that explains why they can’t get enough blacks from here to work....
