The Do-Nothing Contract

$1.2 billion for nothing.

Thought being a lifeguard was a lazy, summer job? At least watching the pool comes with responsibility. The laziest job of the summer goes to the Serco Company. The company, which has a $1.2 billion contract with the government, has hired 1,800 people to process the applications for ObamaCare. According to an investigation by St. Louis’s CBS affiliate, KMOV, weeks go by before employees have a chance to process even one application. “They’re told to sit at their computers and hit the refresh button every 10 minutes. No more than every 10 minutes. They’re monitored,” one employee of the company said. “Their goals are set to process two applications per month and some people are not even able to do that.” If you don’t believe it and are okay with profiting off bloated, government waste brought on by the HHS mandate, Serco is still hiring.
