I don't know all the facts.
This says it all. There's too much judgment based on an inadequate
consideration of the bigger factors that feed this.
We have all been hit by the fact that companies have been bringing
overseas developers by remote into the equation even as they refuse to
let their local employees work from home.
There is lots that goes into this equation, but professionals in some
fields like IT are more vulnerable than others to the booms and busts
that come from Federal Reserve policies inflicting whiplash on the
economy, and to the strangulation of oppressive regulatory and taxation
schemes that make business ownership and growth more difficult than any
other time in U.S. history.
Governments did NOT "make railroads possible" across the continent, but
companies following the model of Taggart Transcontinental.
A truly free market economy is capable of producing transcontinental
railroads, steam engines, cell phones. Government enforced monopolies
and interference in markets (like the Fed's interest rate price-fixing
monopoly and now healthcare intereference), including labor markets
(labor and immigration law) always makes things much worse, bit by bit.
And then the eggheads that know how to move us around like economic
chess pieces and "fix inequality" with stuff like that turn around and
tell us we didn't do everything they told us to do.
Notice I didn't even mention the national ID they've been trying to get
passed in the U.S. for decades and opposed by all sides of political
opinion. They are now giving it traction through the back door with a
proposal to require an ID for all employment.
Maybe it was determined that it was easier to teach the new person IBM i stuff than continuing to bang you head against the wall trying to teach the other guy to stop chanting "if it isn't green, it isn't a screen".
