By Declining Degree Education Higher Risk, We Need High-tech Immigrants
Q: What a pathetic piece of corporate propaganda. They labeled workers that
want to keep their jobs as extremists. Why don't we call those fat,
ultra-rich corporate boys extremists for wanting to destroy the American way
A:This is why so many non-CompSci majors are now doing programming. It is entirely possible that if adequate numbers of CompSci graduates had been granted that companies would have retained their requirement that employees have a CompSci degree, and this would have locked out a fair number of people who are now very successful at programming. I suspect, but of course would never be able to prove, that this would have resulted in lower quality programming. In any event, while I have little doubt that there is a severe shortage of experienced programmers, I'm not sure that figures about degrees prove anything either way. The supply of programmers seems constrained more by a human nature that is at odds with logic and symbolic manipulation. As the information revolution is still very young it is practically inevitable that demand for highly-skilled information workers will continue to outstrip supply for quite a while yet. I have had more jobs with more companies than you ever will. That is what contracting is all about. My understanding of the industry is deeper than yours ever will be. In your case, ignorance is bliss. No, actually you haven't had more experience. As a contracter you CAN'T. You guys always leave before a full product cycle has occurred and even then you only do one small part. And then, to add insult to injury, you guys almost always fuck that up. In any event, you yourself admitted that you were a failure as a contractor, never making more than $40 an hour during the high tech boom years. Even your fellow anti-H-1Bers laugh at that rate.
