Those of you that read this website will know that much of what we base the American future economy on is that of what is already out there in certain developing countries in South America. I recently did a post of landlords needing a guarantor to lease an apartment coming soon or the constant decay of the middle class and even how single men will have a much better choice in women moving forward as they do in almost all third world locations.
One thing I have not touched on that I believe will also be one of the after effects moving forward is that minimum wage will eventually be lowered in order for America to once again be competitive. it really will make little difference to how Americans are beginning to live now anyway, they are taking part time jobs that offer few hours where nobody can really make a living wage on that anyway, the true unemployment rates are through the roof, not the BS unemployment rates that you get from the times or the other media outlets that spew the garbage they want you to hear. The real bottom line of who is working and who is not, not based on who is collecting unemployment and who is not, or not based on who is looking for a job via fake employment ads and who is not. The real who the hell is home because there simply is nobody hiring American full time workers in many cities. Priorities are going to “diversity” rather than Americans. I’ll show you what how you can get a job or become a contractor with the college board below is there “diversity” standards.
The College Board strives to develop and expand relationships with diverse enterprises. Our supplier diversity program ensures that all suppliers have equal opportunity to participate in our procurement and bidding process.
The College Board follows definitions for diverse suppliers created by the National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC), the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), the United States Small Business Administration (SBA), and the National Gay Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC).
Diverse suppliers include:
- 8(a) business
- H.U.B. Zone
- Lesbian, Gay, Bi-Sexual, Transgender Business (LGBT)
- Minority-Owned Business Enterprise (MBE)
- Service Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB)
- Small Business (SB)
- Small Disadvantaged Business (SDB)
- Veteran-Owned Small Business (VOSB)
- Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB)
The College Board also wants to capture data from large businesses.
Certifying as a Small or Diverse Business
Certification is not a condition of doing business with the College Board. A minority, women, or small business owner does not have to be certified to do business with the College Board. However, firms must be certified to receive assistance, referrals, or to be recognized as part of College Board’s supplier diversity program. Being certified also increases opportunities to do business with us as we actively seek to increase business for certified diverse suppliers.
The College Board does not certify suppliers. Agencies through which suppliers can obtain small business certifications include:
- National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC) and regional affiliates
- Women Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC)
- National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC)
- National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO)
- Small Business Administration (SBA)
- US Women’s Chamber of Commerce
Subcontracting Reporting Requirements
To meet federal government requirements, the College Board reports subcontracting (Tier II) spending with diverse business enterprises. Tier II spending consists of payments made to small or diverse-owned businesses for the purchase of goods and services used directly or indirectly in support of the College Board.
Tier II Spend Reporting Process
The College Board expects its prime suppliers to honor their commitment to diversity by actively including certified diverse suppliers as Tier II vendors. However, we do not dictate which companies prime suppliers use. If you are a prime supplier to the College Board, follow the process below so that your business will be considered as supporting the College Board’s supplier diversity program.
- Tier I suppliers complete the Tier II spend report quarterly. To submit the report, please log in to supplier registration portal. (Suppliers must report their Tier II spend by the 10th of the month following each calendar quarter.)
- College Board compiles the Tier II data.
- College Board will track Tier II spend by supplier and report annually.

So basically you can quickly tell where preference goes on this so to all you non “diverse” Americans you better get your small business act together and create your own job because they are getting scarcer by the day for you.
America will eventually have to come grips with a choice of whether to wither away and die with an increasing minimum wage while keeping unemployment at peak levels, or deciding to really start manufacturing again and drop the minimum wage by around 50%. If America should fall into deflation which is very possible, it will destroy the economy anyway so the only way to rebuild will be to start fresh and with fresh comes a major adjustment of all prices, and wages.
