it would be nice if the writer goes through the article before sending it to publish. is there even an Editor at this newspaper?
Coming to the important matter, I am surprised the city took this option. Is this another way to support undocumented aliens? I am not even sure if the current workers are legal or undocumented? We sure have become a society of law violators? How about employing undocumented aliens in other jobs like library, IT, city council, finance, police, Fire, etc..?

THIS IS INTERESTING>>>>> Please read the "VIEW'S" article on Jose Vargas, the illegal journalist... There are three "comments" on him, all tell him to get legal or get out...
FUNNY... there is NO ROOM to post any further comments.. Wuzzthe matter VIEW ? Don't you want to hear what real citizens have to say about him ? I have heard him talk, he is very convincing and a real speaker. BUT.... BUT... HE IS AN ILLEGAL resident, without a driver's license. Has he voted ??

I’m a Mountain View resident for a couple of decades. I love my city and believe that this city is growing in the business sector as well in the community, and I don’t understand why the city cannot put a good contract on the table for janitorial service. I believe that the taxes payer shouldn’t be listening to these types of disrespect to the workers who are already making low wages and paying high cost of living like rent in “Mountain View”. On top of losing the pay rate and hours; they have lost all their benefits.
I suggest that in the RFP (request for proposal) the city must estipulate that the contractor must be union or pay prevailing wages to the cleaning staff that way the contractor knows how to bid the project. I know that the city is blaming the contractor, but if there is an open dialog these types of situations wouldn’t happen. Now, the people who are hurting the most are the poor janitors.
As a tax payer, I am very disappointed with way my city has handle the janitorial service contract.
