bullshit. we have more than enough people already in this country and we cannot give jobs to all of them. you want MORE immigrants?
this is not the turn of the century. we already have too many huddled masses yearning to read the next page of their tech support script.
enough is enough! if locals (skilled and hungry) cannot get jobs, then we have enough imports.
I went without work for a few years! I tried and tried and tried. every place I interviewed at, I was the only westerner. I know what was going on and the interviews were confrontational without being directly rude. the drift was: we had to fight hard to get to your country; why should you, a local, get such an easy time getting a job.
seriously, that was the drift from every single god-damned bay area company I interviewed at for the last few years. they went out of their way to not hire americans and it showed in every thing they did.
the resentment of the immigrants towards me, born and raised here in the US, was sickening. they acted like I was out of line even asking to work there. the looks I got, wow, insulting.
the culture of the bay area is broken. we have to admit there is a problem before we fix it. but its broken by design; the ceo's all want to lower wages and they found a way and they are NOT giving it up without a fight.
we are not humans, we are 'resources' to them. that's also part of the problem. no respect for humanity and the fact that part of the social contract in the US is to give every person who can work, a living wage, as long as he does work. that chance was removed about 15 years ago and its been a down-turn ever since.
walk into a bay area company and you will see only indians and asians. in an US company! is that right? of course not. it shows, very clearly, what is going on.
