... training my replacement, after I gave notice.
I am always looking for a new job, anyone who isn't is a fool.
So, I was/am happily employed by a medium sized ,very high tech , company. I'm a sys-integration guy, which means I used to be an very good developer, then got more interesting in the bigger picture. Since I was never satisfied with my knowledge in any aspect of computing, I became very good with OS fundamentals, networking, file systems, and all the other peripheral stuff associated with software development (revision control, ticketing, testing, deployment, you name it, I know about it ) So Integration came easy.
I recently found a significantly better paying, more interesting job, so gave notice. My company hired an H1B to replace me.
He is useless. After 3 weeks of fairly intensive OJT, he is still unable to even start to resolve the few minor problems that come up.
I have very, very little faith that he will be able to take over for me.
I know for a fact that he is being paid less than half of what I am earning. I also know that totally qualified locals are available, for about 85% of my rate.
So, I have told him, he shouldn't even have the job, he is taking a decent paying position from a properly qualified local, and that he should be happy I'm not his boss, cause I'd fire his ass immediately. I have a pretty good suspicion that he was hired because the project manager' wife (indian) has a H1B recruiting company in India. She's a bitch and a half too.
Needless to say we're not really on speaking terms.
Fuck the H1B program. It's just a way to abuse the labor market. There's no skills shortage, there's a corporate greed problem.
