Hard To Compete With Slave Labor

The L.A. Daily News reports that the City of L.A. has awarded a $315,000 graffiti removal contract to a non-profit firm rather than the for-profit firm that has provided the service for the past 12 years.


The law allows non-profit firms to use "court-ordered community service workers." The law does not afford the same option to for-profit firms.


Graffiti Prevention, Inc. of Arleta "could" out of business; six law-abiding people may lose their jobs.

Chick-N-Shit should audit all these so called non profits. I hear time and again what a scam they all are. From gang intervention-prevention to all the resources they're suppose to provide yet all we see is the directors of these non profits driving nice cars.

Looks like the fight is on. Antonio refuses to endorse Angelides and snub him at yesterday's Starbuck's opening and intends to campaign with Arnold he says because of school takeover plan. I'm sure that will piss off the democrats.

Drive by Westlake Village on the 101N, Caltrans just spent thousands this weekend on premium grade mulch to appease the Oaks Christian School in front of it. They couldnt even use the normal mulch from garden waste disposal, it had to be premium stuff. Another example of who you know at Cal Trans determining whether your on/off ramps are trashed or cleaned.
