The other day when I took my family to the fair, I couldn’t help but notice a good number of, for lack of better terms, seedy-looking men wearing jumpsuits, who were sweeping up trash and doing other various odd jobs around the fairgrounds. Using criminals who are conducting their community service for such a huge family tradition such as the Spokane County fair is beyond me.
I for one will not be returning to the Spokane interstate fair with my family until they can assure me they’ll be hiring a legitimate work force and not trying to rake in greater profits by using people which are conducting their community service.
I’ve heard people say that this year’s fair was “very scary.” This is not even due to the well-known criminally insane/field trip/escapee episode. No, this is because of the men who were conducting their community service right amongst all of the families and other fairgoers. This is last thing that people want to be concerned about when they spend their money to be involved with a traditionally family affair.
