Comment I just got done hiring two people... (Score 3, Interesting) 529

I have spent the last several months hiring two QA engineers. I got about two dozen resumes that had been pre-screened by the corporate recruiter. All of them were somewhat qualified. I phone interviewed about half of those, and had about 8-10 people come in for interviews.

Most of them were on some kind of work program. I only saw resumes for three men, and one came in for an interview. He was from an African country. I think the other two may have been Americans, but I didn't phone interview them and am only guessing by their names.

All the rest of the resumes were women, and only 1 was American.

So while I understand the sentiment that the H1B program is being used to "replace American workers" - which I am sure it is - I personally don't see it. I did not get any qualified Americans applying for the position. There was nothing wrong with the salary or the market we are in, and nothing specialized about the positions. Now I do know that Big Corporations are able to use-and-abuse the visa program because I have seen it firsthand. But there is also some good that comes out of the program as well.

I guess this what we've been reduced to though, you have to choose one end of the spectrum, there's no in-between on anything.

Yet that madman and a wildcard managed to overcome the challenge from sixteen politically smart guys and the Republican party machine to become the candidate and then go on to defeat the Democratic candidate, who was supremely qualified and politically adept ; she was fully supported by her party, the media and Hollywood and yet she was beaten by Trump.

You obviously have no idea what you are talking about. Remember Obama, and Clooney telling us that Trump would never, ever, be elected President and they are very smart and full of political nous.

Remember all the political pundits and pollsters telling us Trump had got no chance against the eminently qualified and capable Clinton?

Well here we are with this "madman and wild card" as president who is now setting up to rearrange the relationship with China to America's advantage. He is doing the same with NAFTA, TPP and TTIP. He intends to make sure America becomes energy self sufficient. All this to bring jobs and wealth to AMerica for the national benefit.

You, and all of your ilk, can witter on about Trump as much as you like but the hard fact is that he has never been a politician yet he has rolled over the political class in America and he is about to do the same to China. You, your friends and the Chinese are making a big mistake to underestimate Trump. You think you understand him and make glib pseudo-psychiatric analyses of him but you actually have no understanding of him at all.

Then buy a solar panel and trickle charge it yourself.

Gosh you snowflakes are so special. Serfs to the utilities. Paying the government cheddar because you can't grok that solar and wind are cheaper than fossil fuels and you can install it yourself - 90 percent of the cost is labor.

Do you need government mommy to get you out of bed in the morning, snowflake?

Electricity comes from the wall, everyone knows that. We don't need no stinking power plants, especially nucular!

But seriously, that needs to be solved. We don't all live in California or Texas or Arizona where there's sun all year around for solar power.

Lol, noob, they use solar in most of Canada, not just the south. Wake up, it's 2017, not 1977.
