That means My Government Over-Extending itself to Put me out of business using my tax dollars.
It’s welfare for busninesses that competes with private sector service providers.
There is a ground-swell of Lean professionals losing work to the MEP’s that are investigating a Class-action suit against the government.
Most MEP’s actually use external small-time consultants. Not sure what the point of a lawsuit would be anyway if funding is being slashed. The situation, if there was one in the first place, would resolve itself.
Having spoken with quite a number of different people who are full-time employees or full-time contract employees of MEP’s I beg to differ with you on this point.
Not to mention the fact that subsidies allow them to charge half of my normal rates and advertise on a scale I cannot begin to comprehend.
I’m not sure what you do for a living, but when the US government begins competing directly with you and literally stealing clients away from you, you may see things a bit differently.
Describing some of what has happened to me personally through MEP’s and the business I actually lost to them, would take too much time for this forum.
There is a problem here that is only getting bigger from where I’m standing. I’d bet my left arm the funding will show up as well.
All the Best,
