The world doesn't care. They will keep buying from this company, just like they keep buying from the Walmarts, Apples, and others that have no problem killing others or driving them to suicide to make a buck. Its all business for them and its all about how much they can personally gain before the ride is over for them in the job.
Do not worry though, America has exported this mentality just like its exported its food pyramid.

Very few upsides unless you make it to the exec suite.

Removing hydrogenated Oil from our food supplies and increasing the Omega 3 in our actual food would have more effect and not have any bad side effects. The problem is your food is poisoned and the average wage has dropped so low they needed to cheapen the foods you find with more poison so the producers can get enough margin to stay in business.
Raise the median(not average) wage in America to middle class standards and watch the effects.
Aspartame and Rumsfeld should probably also go on trial at some point, but I doubt the Reaganites(Bush Senior's personal alzheimer ridden boss) will let that happen.
Either way the food is tainted, that is the core issue currently. You wont find many doctor's like the ones of old, because they are killed or bought off before they can have any effect.

I recommend learning Hadoop, learn how to make the filters/plugins work. Learn the setup and feeding of it, its taking off quite fast in the larger enterprises, we are finding it powering all types of analytical stuff and it pays well.
Perl isn't growing, its really useful but its not adding jobs. If your looking for adding jobs, puppet and chef shops are always hiring folks for deployment script programmers.

Given that your over 30 and clearly want a living wage and a 40hour work week. We have decided to get an H1B visa worker in here to learn your job and move it to a communist country. There they work for rice and we only need to wrap nets around the building vs giving you a pay raise. Its what the stock holders want and of course I'll get a huge bonus for saving expenses for the company.

Hmm, Faced with this scenario, what smart American would want to be a Computer grad. Basically only the hardcore guys will want to suffer this, the rest will go on to a business degrees.

Perhaps 14cents an hour destroyed our jobs. Lack of regulation such as tariffs and protective laws. Please don't say over regulation broke anything. 14cents an hour and 0 care about cancer and environment in communist countries. Take your pick. I'd preffer LACK of regulations, all these changes were put in place for the benefit of a very few. Walton inheritors have the same wealth as 42% of America i'm told.

At some point you will stop being AC or be ignored. Right now you have not addressed the fact that these 2 fellows could easily fund a college say facebook college of programming or Microsoft college of programming, which would train employees in what they need, just like many industries over the years have done. Instead they are doing this crazy crap which is all intent confusing the market while they ask to pay people 10$ an hour or less while they make off with billions, not pay full taxes, avoid taxes such as MS lisc center in Reno, and overseas accounts. This is a many layered attempt to lower wages of American's, while convincing them its their fault for not being smart enough. I'm sure they justify this to themselves but its all about how much money flows to them in the end. Glorified Self interest with a marketing plan.

I do not understand where you think the FBI harassed him into his state of mind. "Look at that shooter in texas - read his tweets and you can see how the FBI's harassment over the years drove him from a regular dude to someone deeply angry."
Makes no sense.
Btw, France has the highest illegal and immigrant population in current sand wars. And remember peace to some = Your all converted, do not confuse it with your western definition of peace.

Or you could be running a DR dos product or an Amiga without hidden loops slowing it down to match a PC crap speed for 4 years before being found by a PHD hobbiest. BTW MS was paid to write amiga dos.
Please don't pine away for the good times that never existed except in the paid for articles to promote MS and its planned marketing process.
Nor blame hobbiests for using software that they then took to work to solve real problems that made him the richest man on earth. They could have taken other software that exists if it wasn't broken intentionally.
Please go back and reread those 208 monopoly findings.

Comment Most companies I know that do this... (Score 1) 636

Most companies I know that have done this, do not understand they are taking a 5 year road trip to mediocrity and fail. It takes about 5 years of breaking the cycle to fully understand what they just did to themselves. I'm sure some "MBA know it all", just got a huge bonus check and doesn't care because he is either retiring or moving on. Or possibly he is retiring and moving on in 5 years and just doesn't know it yet. Most companies bring in a consulting firm to help explain how best to accomplish this who also make a huge amount of money.
