Not saying that it's right or wrong but LACTMA does something similar although it think that it's community based and not raced based. A significant number (20%?) of expo workers came from south LA. They are sometimes lower level trainees or recent tech school grads. It can be done if they set the rules up front and it is beneficial in the long term. Maybe it does cost a little extra but I think that we would all rather use money like that on job training rather than welfare for doing nothing.
