KingCast checking up on the Boston Jobs Policy.

You know, my life is truly blessed. I get to ride my 650R around town and document government and contractor compliance with the Boston Residency Jobs Policy, or lack thereof. Take a look here at the TOUCH 106.1 FM blogspot for YouTube video documentation and more information about this brown brother doing all the work while the Good White Folk stand on shovels and order him hither and tither. Executive Order 11375 not at work.

And women? Fuggitaboutit. Executive Order 11246 not at work.

Remember, there are three separate issues involing the Boston Resident Standards -

1) Boston Resident Construction Employment

2)Boston Residency Ordinance, which requires city workers to live in the city while employed-Menino has cowered to the unions and as of Feb/2008 employees only have to live in the city for 10 of those years of employment. This ordinance is not a condition of bargaining it is a condition of employment -

3) BPS seats are still going to children outside the city, especially Boston Latin. Remember - you the tax payer are paying the salaries of city workers.
