    Hope someone tells them that they actually have to do some work when hired. Makes me sick that contractors are REQUIRED to hire these people and then end up doing most of the work themselves while these MBE, DBE, etc. contractors just collect a check. I’ve seen it happen over and over and over again. Most also give half azzed work if they do anything.

    Minority contracting is a sham with nothing but lazy blacks & their wives listed as owners. The work, if they do any, is so bad the cost exceeds the original by four fold.
