Everything should be based on merit. Standards for everything have been gone so because of so called diversity that when hiring people to work for you their competence is always in question. You have to consider yourself lucky if you end up with a job well done.
Even getting decent professional service is a gamble, at the present time.
This situation is caused by 50 years of Liberals controlling education,It’s also caused generations of children to be lazy, not strive for excellence, and have an entitlement attitude.
I also believe government should stay out of business.
