In my previous post, I noted that my august university has decided to boondoggle outsource privatize another teaching function, in this case, aviation instruction, through the hiring of North Star Aviation and, presumably, moving university employees to North Star. Part of how outsourcing can be economically feasible is through paying employees less.  Of course, it could be that North Star makes money simply by cheating customers, as is alleged in a lawsuit based partly on information from North Star employees.  Did BGSU look into this before contracting with North Star?  Maybe.  Admittedly, it was really hard information to dig up: I had to open up a browser and type in “North Star aviation lawsuit” in the search box.  So much for due diligence.
