352. Do you know how many contractors there are?
It is not only the huge corporations getting paid to develop systems.

Tens of thousands, from large corporations to mom & pop businesses are contractors.

I know a woman who runs a small computer retail and repair shop. She's a government contractor.

Because the government also buys your stuff doesn't mean your company is "paid for by taxes."

The government puts out the bid, you bid, you win, the government buys. Now you're a contractor.
