As the economic toll of COVID continues to plague Kansas City, our blog community works to secure opportunities for readers.
Accordingly . . .
NEW CITY HALL JOBS REQUIRE APPLICANT EXPERTISE IN DIVERSITY, INCLUSION AND EQUITY!!!
Sadly, a KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTER seems skeptical.
Here's the word:
"Is KCMO adding a social justice screener to its public works permitting?
Why is an eco devo fluff job like this within the public works / permitting department?
Are public works budget dollars getting sucked up into positions like this one? Instead of streets and potholes and basic services?"
These are all great questions that won't ever be answered by city hall.
And so, merely share the job listing and hope that lucky readers with the right skillz/connections can earn decent cash with this b.s. job:
