While we import over 100,000 tech workers a year on H1B visas, we’re going to lay off over one hundred thousand tech workers this year.
Here’s the take-home quote from the article …….
Mark Haranas, of tech news website CRN, which earlier in the day reported Cisco would eliminate potentially as many as 14,000 jobs, told FOXBusiness.com the tech industry is cutting the dead weight.
“The jobs cuts are necessary to shed some staff in order to bring on new employees with the skillset needed in today’s market. The networking skills needed in 2016 is drastically different from the skills that were needed just five years ago in 2011,” he said.
Fascinating. Some tech worker in 2011, who managed a degree, who understood all the nuances and implications of networking in 2011, suddenly can’t read, Google, or keep up with the changes now …… or something.
Ageist much, Mark Haranas? Oh, yeh, networking is sooooooo much harder, today. Plug-n-play is so tricky compared to having to play with comm ports and IRQs. Yeh, advancing protocols are sooooo hard to keep up with. Why it seems just the other day I was working on a MoDem sort of protocol, but, had to change to working with NICs. Weird, I was able to do that, but, now, we can’t seem to network, properly, for all the nuanced networking new fangled gizmos! Yes, the IEEE 801.xxx is sooooo hard to read and understand!!!!!!
These policies, be it from the US government or the individual companies are nothing but an extension of globalist thinking and a suppression of the American dominance of technology. It’s wage suppression.
Is it any wonder that the US government and the Clintons couldn’t find competent IT personnel?
We mass import dumbasses who don’t even understand the base of networking. We lay off, by the hundred of thousands, people who do. With this idiocy, why would any intelligent person elect to enter the competitive job market of the IT world? It pays better to get a degree in basket weaving.
