I wish he wasn't named Larry

During those three years odds are excellent that people currently employed will retire, change jobs or move.

Do you think anyone has told him that three years down the road he may not need extra help to explain the program because everyone will know how it works but he will still need people. At that point his county has a pool of trained staff to draw on.

As a business owner, paying time and a half or double time for three years to avoid hiring does not make any sense. It is not a sustainable long term strategy.
