To back up Jacob here, Rick. I think in most cases like these; the employer is looking to solve a problem ASAP and chooses to use a cheap and fast source. It's also been my experience that in the long-run it doesn't matter all that much if you help out or not. I might have been extremely unlucky with my employers, but I never heard again about going the extra mile (which I did) or get any bonuses from it. Left quite a sour taste in my mouth.
