Scott,

I don't find this a contradiction at all.

This guy wants full time hires, not consultants.  In my experience, the use
of consultants is for short term gain, not long term pain.  If you can only
get the short termers, why go for the pain too?

I'm not trying to defend this guy, because I don't know how hard he
actually looked for qualified permanent hires.  But I won't condemn him
either based solely on the comments below

I thought this article raises an interesting contradiction:

http://www.informationweek.com/story/showArticle.jhtml?articleID=17800189

The quote:

 "Hummel says he's had some jobs open for two years looking for qualified
people, and, if he can't hire someone to do a job, he has to pay
consultants three or four times the salary rate."

to me says he *can* find qualified workers (the consultants), he just
doesn't  want to pay the going rate.  So he looks for H1B workers instead.
