Menino wins, will face challenges in minority hiring, transparency, schools and CORI reform.

We will start with the Boston Residents Jobs Policy referenced in this post from earlier today, with black folks and women underrepresented and doing all of the work in the gentrified community of the South End -- nee Roxbury.

Everything else will unfold in Due Course, but we anticipate vigorous cooperation from the Mayor, which is nice.


  1. Seriously, what kind of indignities does this brother face every day? He does not look happy, everyone else looks happy and chill.

    And the women on the worksite.....

    Oh, wait......

  2. Employment Standards

    The Boston Residents Construction Employment Standards as set forth in the Mayor's Executive Order of July, l985 entitled The Executive Order Extending the Boston Residents Jobs Policy, attached hereto as Exhibit A and adopted by the Boston Redevelopment Authority on July 26, l985. Specifically, the Executive Order requires that the Developer's Construction Employment Plan shall ensure that on a craft by craft basis for construction employment for the Project, the following Boston Residents Construction Employment Standards are met:

    1. at least fifty (50) percent of the total employee worker hours in each trade shall be by bona-fide Boston Residents.
    2. at least twenty-five (25) percent of the total employee worker hours in each trade shall be by minorities; and
    3. at least ten (l0) percent of the total employee worker hours in each trade shall be by women.

    For the purpose of this Plan, employees shall include persons filling apprenticeship and on-the-job training positions.

    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.
