US Contract Companies are hiring 15 to 20 Third Country Nationals (Indians, Filipinos, etc) for every one American in Afghanistan. 10% of Americans out of work and DynCorps, Fluor, CACI, AECOM, KBR and all of these other “American” International Contract companies aren’t interested in hiring any of them. Maybe they’ll hire some illegal immigrants as well.
They are keeping their bottom line in check with these moves. Making millions of dollars in profit by stiffing the American worker. DynCorps, KBR and Fluor can hire 20 Indians for the cost of hiring one US Citizen. The US Government is awarding these multi-million dollar contracts to these “American” companies and they here 80-90 percent foreign employees.
What I think is even more humorous is that the US Government is making this concerted effort to break up large contracts such as the KBR LOGCAP II contract as well as others. There are very few companies that can handle the logistics of these operations. What ends up happening is that Company A wins the contract from the US government. Company A then subcontracts to KBR (or whatever company) or a subsidiary of KBR. The same company winds up with all of the contracts that they had before. The difference is that there is now a middle man. It’s all a shell game. I guess Congress and the average American out there are idiots and are fooled by all of this muddling of facts and actions.
Another thing that Company B (KBR) does is form another company/corporation. It looks like a separate company on paper but it’s indirectly owned by the same people. They even hire the same folks from earlier contracts to run them. Same PM, same DPM, same cast and crew. On the surface, a new company is in business and winning contracts. In reality, it’s the same group of folks making the same money.
And it’s easy to see. Easy to investigate, but, the US government is too lazy or incompetent to see the obvious. I’ve been laughing for 5 years. Same crooks winning the same contracts and the same Congress and DOD/DOS getting scammed for more and more tax dollars.
It’s been the same story since at least World War II. I bet that some of these companies can be traced back to the War between the States. The US Government never learns. They just open that check book and sign more checks.
No, I’m not a disgruntled employee or former employee. Most of my contract work requires that I am a US citizenship. This doesn’t affect me and never will.
