Show them the money

Dear Editor: Hey, Dr. Tesoro! The hard-working, unpaid contractors of this valley are not interested in going to one of Mr. DeGraff’s fancy restaurants for one of his overpriced steaks. What they are interested in is being able to pay their employees, their insurance and their mortgages.

The fact of the matter is they provided a service and performed work that they are not being paid for. Any issues regarding unfinished or shoddy work can always be dealt with through the retainange fees that are typically held from the contractors’ pay until the end of the project.

Perhaps the contractors of this valley should take a clue from the medical profession and start collecting their fees “on the day services are rendered.”
