Keep in mind that the US is one of the only places in the world where

(see So this is not
a direct cost that the business has to care about.

I don't know anything about retirement benefits.

Which is why people outsource — they don't want to deal with managing
retirement and health benefits. It isn't always cost, sometimes its
about simplifying.


Every day, mindful practice.  When the mind is disciplined, then the
Way can work for us.  Otherwise, all we do is talk of the Way; everything
is just words; and the world will know us as its one great fool.
