Submission + - Death Of The Ameican IT Worker?

teched58 writes: To H-1B Or Not To H-1B? asks whether this story sounds familiar: "Dave Lovelace laughs when you ask about the purported shortage of qualified IT workers. He has 35 years of senior-level IT experience under his belt, he's written books. Apparently, though, nobody needs his services. Over the past 24 months, he's applied for hundreds of jobs. It's rare he gets even a courtesy e-mail or call in return." Do you think we're facing an IT shortage of crisis proportions, like Bill Gates and other business leaders claim, or are we systematically destroying a skilled and capable homegrown workforce?
