The tender system is the reason we are the most unequal society in the world. It is aimed at making millionaires instead of fighting poverty,

One individual gets a tender worth millions in profits but the government doesn't care how much the workers doing the actual work get.

Why do we need a tender for food parcels? That only works to making tenderpreneurs rich and drastically reduce the amount of food going to those in need.
