The vast majority of no- covered contract employees are in the information technology field where compensation is well above “living wage” standards. http://www.goer.state.ny.us/Labor_Relations/index.cfm From Marta Santiago, Director of Human Resources: "Oswego State employs between 1200-1400 state employees directly.
