Wasn't part of the downfall of 38 that they had way to many employees? Thought I read somewhere they had close to 400!? Seems high.

They had to create a specific amount of jobs to receive all that tax payer money.

And THAT is the problem with government "creating jobs". Let's say the average salary was 75k. Obviously there are some who made more and some who made less, but 75k for the east coast isn't a stupid high number for a professional position. With 379 employees that's 28.5 million in one year, out of the 75 million borrowed. That doesn't include overhead of office space, utilities, computers, software, etc. etc.

The mandate to employ that many people is what killed the company. The resulting game could have been easily built with probably 1/3rd that number, so there was a ton of unneeded redundancy of people.
