In 2013, a U.S. Senate committee exposed the fact that too many federal contractors are violating federal wage laws and health and safety standards, yet continue to profit off of U.S. taxpayers with repeat contracts.
"operating profits of $3.5 billion in 2014. Across all of its divisions, Manpower reports linking 3.4 million people worldwide to temporary, contract, and permanent positions"
That would be a profit of $1,000 per person placed in one year. Let say those guys work on average 30hrs/month (all temps), that would give us about $2.75 per hour profit for each person placed. I guess they could increase all wages by $2.75/hr and call themselves a non profit org. Or fire 10% of their workforce. Or maybe bill the customer (US Govt) more.
