And I've heard the new contractor already closed up. IRC OR IRL or some thing. Them shutting down is just word of mouth rumor though. But they aint out there no more. Thats what happens when you bid jos way bigger than you should be, for way less than you should be. They take out big loans to grow. Then cash flow catches up to. I dont want to get ig just to say I'm big. I want money. If that aint possible I'll stay small

If Government started requiring PERFORMANCE BONDS a lot of that Throat cutting would stop. If contractors had to put up hard assets like their house as a Bond guarantee, I am sure Bid prices would change for the better. But then Government would be cutting their own throat by doing that.
