North Dakota Hires Latvians To Help With Old Computer System

(Bismarck, ND) — The state of North Dakota is hiring Latvians to help manage an old computer system. Officials chose Latvian programmers to maintain the mainframe because the technology is still taught in the country. Officials say a college in Latvia still teaches a curriculum on the outdated programming language that controls the state’s unemployment insurance mainframe. Governor Doug Burgum has earmarked nearly 105 million for IT projects in his proposed budget.
