"Tech's problem is that it doesn't have strong unions and advocacy groups" /yawn. If you're in tech, and having trouble finding a job, then GTFO because you're clearly not capable. Show me someone in tech that's having trouble finding a decent paying job, and I'll show you an incompetent "tech". I've been in the industry for 40+ years, and hire plenty of good techs at good wages. Want to "fix" tech?...
We need lawmakers to stop companies from the H1B madness.
We need to put an end to the huge debt load we're weighing down kids going through college.
We need a national solution to the lack of pensions, and shitty 401ks.
We need a national solution to immigration and healthcare.
We need term limits and money/lobbyists out of government influence.
I could go on. Your unions and advocacy groups aren't going to fix this. And, for whatever it's worth, I'm a fiscal conservative who believes in smaller government.
