Two South Dakota Lawmakers Question Manpower Progress

Two South Dakota lawmakers are asking Governor Dennis Daugaard for answers over the $5 million contract to recruit workers to the state.  Senator Billie Sutton and Representative Susan Wismer sent the governor a letter Wednesday.  The letter contained a list of questions, including asking for the number of jobs that have been filled and the amount of money the state has paid to Manpower Incorporated since the company signed the contract last year.  Daugaard asked lawmakers to hire the company to recruit 1,000 workers within three years.  The lawmakers say at last report Manpower has placed 83 out-of-state employees in South Dakota.
