At a suitably high salary and benefits level, you'd have more language and computer experts than you could hire.Because they don't want to pay them. They want to be able to get top people at slave wages and reduced benefits. I know several out-of-work IT people on another board who said they would be delighted to work on a consulting basis in their fields for a fair price but the feds weren't interested. Hmm. I guess there isn't so much a shortage of computer personnel as they claimed?As for the shortage of language personnel...again, they don't seem as terribly worried as they pretend. About a year ago, they laid off 6 Farsi/Arabic translators because they were gay! Anyone else remember that?
