Cleanup contractor spitting in faces of Libby residents

To the Editor:

This letter is in regards to the hiring practice that MCS is doing. It was my understanding that when

these companies were giving the contracts to clean up the asbestos here in Libby they were to hire local


Well something is wrong with this picture then. The guy representing MCS at the job fair said they do

not hire local that they bring back their own crew from Spokane aka IRS and that if they get the next

contract they may consider hiring Libby help but no promises. What kind of crap is that?

There are so many people here in Libby in need of work and trained for it, what is the problem? If they

don't want to hire us then get out of town so someone who will hire Libby people can get the work.

They are taking money out of our town and giving nothing back, they underbid the other companies so

that they can get all the work and turn around and spit in our faces by not hiring our people. You tell me

what is wrong with this picture.
