    If they can do it for 20 k let them. But I would be willing to bet that they have no clue about what they are doing. They wont keep the job for long.

    I was at a bid opening where my bid fell in the middle. It was for mowing 28 parks for a park district. High bid 135,000. Low bid
    33,000. Some guys are just willing to work for nothing.
