I've had it with the political articles. There are plenty of websites for those. Slashdot USED to be "News for nerds, stuff that matters". I'm not saying this story doesn't matter. But it has no place in ANY tech forum. I will surely visit from time to time but will no longer follow on my FB page. Adios.

I'm' trying to break into an IT career at age 42. Lots of personal but no employment experience in IT. "Go to college" they said. "It will help you break it." I graduate next year. So, will I be one of those "blank slates" like the ones young enough to be my kid or am I screwed before even applying?

I'm amazed by how society is tolerating this overt age discrimination. If all of us over 40 were black, this would have been solved years ago.

scottbomb writes: “At this point it would be premature for USCIS to speculate as to whether Southern California Edison’s participation in the H-1B program has violated laws,” Mr. Rodriguez wrote. “If facts come to our attention that indicate violations have occurred, USCIS will take appropriate action to maintain the integrity of our programs.”

Mr. Durbin and Mr. Sessions were not pleased with the brush-off.

“We did not ask for speculation; we asked for an investigation,” they said in a joint statement.
