City of Seattle tells contractors: NO WHITE MALES!


The City of Seattle held a pre-bid meeting for contractors in which they were told that they must use female and minority apprentices for city jobs. The jobs in question are being paid for by the Federal Stimulus program.

Slide seven of city’s powerpoint presentation states “Must use under represented groups — No white males w/o WSDOT approval and extensive good faith effort documentation.”
