Facing shortage of high-skilled workers, employers are seeking more immigrant talent, study finds

Shortage my ass. Pay more and stop committing H1B fraud.

shortage of high-skilled workers

Yeah, just not the shortage of the exact high-skills you have.

This is fark. I thought would be said by now.

You don't have five years experience in a technology developed two years ago?

That and don't expect 24/7 slave labor regardless of the wage. Hire enough people to have coverage 24/7 not one guy 24/7.

Sounds like you failed to mount /dev/obama/time.machine with the proper privileges again.

Need to invent a language called 'hammer of the gods'. First order of biz: replace sow and reap with hack and massacre.

The job descriptions are trash anyways.

More like I want the job at mega-company X and have all the skills, but they say no I don't and "not moving forward". They're still looking months later.

That's more of a project manager issue. For example, when writing code, I would have to completely finish my part or else I would have to start from the beginning the next day. So if it takes 18 hours, I'll do 18 hours (not anymore, though: my eyes can't handle that). Best is to figure out how to chop down the coding into smaller pieces.

Nice headline you got there, subs.

Let's all continue to pretend that coding skills are infinitely comparable and independent of a wide range of personality, motivation, and discipline issues. That always moves things forward.

I found it to be syllabically challenged.

My dad was a security guard working for a major manufacturer in the 80s. When they closed the plant he was at, the company paid for him to go back to school to learn mechanical engineering and worked with him every step of the way to ease the transition for him even though it was years before he was truly qualified.

He retired a couple of years ago. The security personnel at all of their facilities are now low-paid outside contractors, and he tells me that all entry-level engineering work is now either outsourced or done by H1Bs who are coerced into living out of the office.

In short, capitalism was a mistake.

Capitalism is the worst possible economic system, except for all the others.

Screw that.  You've got me from opening of the business day to the close of the business day.

I've done the on call thing, and worked after hours, and I'm not doing that anymore.

Of course, I have an advantage.  I work in higher ed, not in the private sector.  So I can get away with it.  But that's my choice.  I've worked in the private sector, and I won't do that again unless I absolutely have to.
