Cost of support is a laugh

Posted by: lsatenstein on December 09, 2006 09:05 PM
What does it cost in an underdevelopped country to train a person who draws no salary, and who, if he/she works, has an hourly rate far far below that of the author.

If you were to indicate the number of hours required for support, then I would say that that is a way to compare apples with apples. Again, my hours are more costly then another's.
I would say that the author is trying to generate controversy and nothing more.
