Nice article by Bill Lueders about the use of contractors for State work increasing again last year. If the State is broke and can't afford to pay public workers like Walker claims, how do they afford to keep hiring private workers? In the end private workers cost taxpayers more.

"The latest report, for fiscal 2012, was quietly submitted in mid-November. As with prior reports, it appears intent on meeting the letter of the law while being as unenlightening as possible. Overall, the amount spent by state agencies and the University of Wisconsin System on outside contractors increased by more than 5 percent over the prior year, to a total of $515.8 million. All of the increase owed to state agencies; the UW System held steady at $125 million."
