HOLYYY! crap If I had to give up a $130+ of my daily rate to the Afghan Government, knowing where it more than likely was ending up, I do not think I could continue to work there but the remaining amount would still be tough to turn down.

Of course Iraq has had this happening for awhile now as well. Crazy that transaction is allowed to occur in either country. Glad I left that world a few years ago.

Curious to know if companies have compensated for that with a daily rate adjustment to keep people on contracts, or are they saying sorry take it off the top and march on?
