Unfortunately this cartoon strip very acurately describes what happens today. Where I work is a prime example. We have a division who has as one of its missions to create web based courses using Flash. Their personnal also double as teachers so they have and intern who ends up doing all the Flash work. They decided to expand production to take some of the burden off the intern. They hired a bunch of contractors to take over production of the courses. Now all the intern is allowed to do is watch. Makes for some boring days that is for certain.
