I guess they decided it is better to be unemployed at a contract rate grade of $30 an hour than to be actually employed for $25 per hour.

It is like the old joke about the lady who goes into the butcher shop:

"How much is ground beef?"

"$3 a pound"

"But the butcher shop across the street only charges $2.50 a pound."

"Then why aren't you over there buying his?"

"He is out of ground beef."

"Oh, well when I'm out of ground beef I only charge $2 a pound."
