The part that a lot of people did not understand was that it was a marginal tax rate increase. That means that if you made $200,001 in a year, only $1 would be taxed at the hire rate given a $200,000 cutoff. People seemed to think that once you went into a higher tax bracket, ALL you income would be taxed at the high rate. What that all boils down to is that only the very rich would feel the tax increase.
This "misunderstanding" was being pushed intentionally to scare people. It's been debunked many, many times, but keeps coming back because it's an easily understood (though completely incorrect) way to make people scared of taxes.
Cost of living is going up everywhere you can hire programmers. It's not a race to the bottom (Bangalore is more expensive than many American cities now), it just takes a generation or two to level out.
Great! I'll just wait a few generations, and I'll be rolling in money!
I mean, that's a reasonable assumption, right?
He's basically looking for someone who has already been doing the job they're advertising for.
This is the big problem. Companies got spoiled by the downturn (especially right after the dot com bust) where they could hire very experienced people for pennies on the dollar, and expect to be able to do so indefinitely without training anyone new.
Exactly. The *AA and their government goons have never cared about process. Same when you get arrested under false pretenses, the establishment gets off with a 'sorry' while in the mean time you lost your job, lost relationships and regardless of conviction you have a record that keeps influencing whether or not you'll get hired in the future and whether or not you keep getting re-arrested and strip searched for simply existing.
I vehemently disagree!
They almost never say "sorry".
