Lowest Bidder

The city went with (in their words) "the lowest bidder" for our new garbage and recycling collection. People who were supposed to have their garbage collected last Wednesday are still waiting to have it picked up, and now they are complaining about the lousy service.

We went with the company who promised to do the work for the least amount of money, and now we wonder why the service is not the greatest. It's possible that it is because they are using cheap equipment, with the fewest, lowest paid staff they can manage to get away with in order to come in with a really low bid but remain profitable.
