Subject:Nose count still goes on From:Herman Holtz <holtz -at- PALTECH -dot- COM> Date:Fri, 19 Jan 1996 08:28:34 UNDEFINED
To my surprise, I am still getting resposnes to my original appeal. Current
count is 41 staffers to 25 freelancers (66% to 34%), but there are some gray
areas, such as one who isn't sue how to report her status, another who is
apparently reporting for two others on staff who don't subscribe to this group
list. Ayway, there has been a shift, with the latest count reflecting a larger
percentage of staffers than the early count reported. Perhaps staffers were
more reluctant to report their status than freelancers?
