Re: willing to pay them enough
There is apparently this thing that business has with the size of the salary line in the budget sheet - they like to have that minimized, for some unfathomable reason. So they don't hire, but take on consultants because those guys go under operating costs, or some other bull like that.
I will never understand the reasoning behind that. I would prefer having the talent in the company, ensuring that, when things go wrong, I have the people who know how things work on-site and ready to intervene, and that in the long term.
I'm obviously not modern CEO material
