    trying to find the same case studies, jformga.

    they are few and far between,
    unless they're from Conservative Think Tanks.


    The whole push for Privatization,

    Looks like the Next Big Speculative Bubble to me.


    I wonder WHO will end up picking up THIS Tab,
    when it ultimately fails?

    any guesses people.

        All personnel functions like hiring and firing, time keeping, disciplinary actions and so on can also be contracted out. And, everyone will make money. Oh, and one more thing. You can hire law firms that specialize in busting unions. Yeah! Everyone will make money! Whaddaya :-(

          EVERYONE WINS, when everyone first loses their Worker Rights and Worker Dignity.

          It's all so clear to me now.

          ;-)
