Readers respond to Mike Holmes’ comment that 70% of contractors are "bad" and 10% "ugly"
Mike Holmes hammers Canadian contractors in the latest issue of Readers Digest. "What percentage of contractors are doing good, honest work?" he's asked in an interview about his new show, Holmes Makes It RIght. "I call it the good, the bad and the ugly: 20, 70 and ten percent, respectively" Holmes replies.
In this video clip, CANADIAN CONTRACTOR’s Rob Koci and Steve Payne dip into the mail (um, e-mail) “bag” for some contractor reaction to our recent articles on Mike Holmes. In an interview published in the November issue of Reader’s Digest, the “third most trustworthy celebrity in the world” (behind Morgan Freeman and Ron Howard, according to Forbes magazine) dumps – yet again – on his fellow contractors. He says only 20 per cent of them are “good,” 70 per cent of them are “bad” and 10 per cent of them are “ugly” (presumably, he meant the quality of the work they do).
