Daniel....the article I have reference to was published on November 3rd. (look under HWC news), conserning the adquisition of two staffing companies by WAK for its Wackenthunt Resoures Division. Sorry if I have not made this clear, but as you know the staffing that WHC refers to probably has to do with the corretional facilities and/or hospital in Broward County, Fla. that they atually diretly own and run. As far as I know WHC is not in the staffing business per se, other than to supply for their needs at their facilities.
The article seems to indicate a more grandiose plan than merely staffing to supplement the corrections business.. this may be the case since the staffing business is held by the parent not just WHC itself as you earlier indicated.
