I know this may start a thread from hell but if you want to protect your job, go to www.numbersusa.com or www.fairus.org and sign up for free. They let you fax your senators and congressmen for free with predefined faxes that fight against the H-1B's, offshoring, and illegal immigration problems. Also watch Lou Dobbs on CNN and get the real story about what corporate America is doing to us in the tech industry. I can only give you the tools, you have to take them, and join the good fight. -----Original Message----- From: midrange-jobs-bounces+sking=gbsio.net@xxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:midrange-jobs-bounces+sking=gbsio.net@xxxxxxxxxxxx]On Behalf Of JM Solutions Sent: Thursday, February 03, 2005 2:31 PM To: Frank; midrange-jobs@xxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: Re: What's an RPG Programmer worth these days? *** Please pay close attention when replying to a message on this list! *** If you want the reply to go to the list, use REPLY-TO-ALL *** Recruiters may advertise only permanent employment positions in this list. Your being hosed by the import of cheap labor called Guest Workers. You entered the market at the wrong time, the IT sector has taken a direct hit of cheap imported labor at the end of 2000. Companies have learned to become cost effective and they want more imports. Later this year expect the limit cap of H-1B's imported into North America to be raised or even removed. Some say we just experienced the first wave of destruction...time will tell. Regardless, You should never be put in position to ask for a raise. Maybe its just me, but I view it as a positive reception when the company rewards you on their own recognition. Your pay depends on several factors, such as company perks like 100% paid insurance! The best way to find out how much your worth is to take control of your position and start exploring other companies yourself. Dont ever allow your decision to 'go' or 'stay' be based on what Smith is making at abc company. Smith making 25k-30k may be because the person is a deadbeat.While John at xyz taking in 85k may be because his uncle owns the place or he works 7/24 with no insurance. Let us know what happens! ...good luck JoeM Important Confidentiality Notice: This email message, including all attachments is for the exclusive use by the person(s) to whom it is addressed, and may contain information that is confidential or privileged.
