This is the problem with Leftists who play these silly games of making sure that so many rejects are on a crew hired by a municipality to work on public projects. If you Leftists have a problem with this, I say you are a liar if you care about minorities being hired for public projects and are as phoney as your ideology because you would never hire the 3 Stooges and Laurel and Hardy to work on any project around your home so pare us the political correctness crap...
