This Old Rant !
I just finished a contract working for one month with a well known fashion
designer who had H1B's contracted to work as their programmers. I was
contracted for a 2-4 month assignment which ended in when I completed the
work in six weeks as a result of pressure to finish quickly by the
designer company. They have a 20 person staff from Pakistan called Visionet Systems
who in turn contracted me to do a job for them (I am US Born and raised) Now under normal
circumstances, I would have been hired eventually and trained in other
areas of the company but not the budget conscious designer company, my
assignment was done they let me go and the Pakistani consulting company
stayed. I am still out of work and now on Welfare since I did not make
enough money or time put in to file for unemployment!!!! THIS IS WHAT
PROGRAMS LIKE THIS DO TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE!!!!!!!
Last Company surprisingly enough was in NYC! contractors from India 3 of them there for 2 years
Contracted me for for a help desk /Programmer position Stock market took a hit Bye Bye in 2 weeks. Lasted
all of 2 months. 3 employees from other departments got terminated and they still kept the India based consultants.
Cheap foreign labor practices are alive and well.
Goodbye, American-born high-tech innovators.
I'd bet that Jack Kilby is turning in his grave, and if you don't know who Kilby is, then you don't deserve to be in this business. These days American companies (particularly IBM) prefer cheap foreign labor, not American-born innovators.
