To the EDN:


Transitive Verb

Definition: to procure(as some goods or services needed by a business or organization) under contract with an outside supplier. (Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary)

I felt it was important for Mr. Magnuson to know the correct definition of Outsource, since he states that “We’re not outsourcing anything.” Even if FBG hires locally it is still outsourcing by definition.

In my opinion $15.45 an hour after 20-plus years of service to the ELC community is not outlandish. I understand this is the veterans’ rate of pay and not the starting wage.

Also, let us remember that the FBG company is based out of Nebraska. Economically, our tax dollars would be going out of state. However, the bigger picture should be focused on effects this will have on the dedicated custodial staff and their families, people who for the most part LIVE IN ESTHERVILLE AND SPEND THEIR HARD EARNED MONEY HERE!
