#2 My brother and I recently started a security company in California. We have just emerged from the license and incorporation phase and are in the process of searching for workable contracts. Many of the public bid disclosures show people winning bids with a price that is below our cost. Our COST. This is a home based, family owned, zero overhead business, and they are below our COST. I'm pretty sure they aren't providing health care, 401K matching and paid sick leave for that price, so as a small business fledgling, I'd be interested in seeing someone at least keep a record of this. I'd really like to be able to turn in a bid that allows me to pay an armed guard over $15 an hour, it would be nice to offer benefits and vacation as well. But for a winning bid price of $23 an hour I'd have to take $10 an hour out of my pocket to make that happen.

#3 Wonder if the Obamamites have considered the possibility that some of the bigger firms will do the calculation that the cost of complying with this across the entire spectrum of their business will outweigh any profit made from Government business and just cease to bid on Government procurements.
