re: Microsoft IT Hiring Problems Bogus, Say Programmers
What a crock! I am over qualified for most of those positions posted but did I ever get a response from an employer? NO! I changed my entry to H-1 visa required and of Indian nationality and I got hundreds of calls!

Same resume just one form India and one US. US got no reponses Indian got hundreds. HMMMM LIARs I have to call it when I see a lying carpet bagger!

Standard practice to post adds and insist nobody with the expertise availbale to hire. Yea right they are posted to use as evidence for more visas not to actually hire someone! I am the one training these new hires that have NO experience whatso ever in this particular product but hundreds of AMerican workers who do actually have the experience were over looked to hire the visa holder with no experience. How do these liars sleep at night. Greed and lots of money must help but I couldn't live with myself had I ruined so many lives for my own personal gain. How about you? What kind of American are you? Help your neighbor? Or steal his money? Which are you?

Government and Corporations have made it very clear - steal the money - it is the new AMERICAN way! Greed is good!

Actually greed is the mark of the devil, if you believe in such things. And that is easy to see if you look at what GREED has done to the world's economy! Greed and corruption has brought the world to the brink of a new dark ages and you still believe greed is good. That your representative gives a hoot about you! Get a life you are living in Mayberry and it is fictional!

I was outraged when Billy Gates testified before Congress and LIED about his motives. 30 billion was not enough! He needed to replace his expensive American labor with cheap imported labor to realize bigger PERSONAL gains! This is a man that tried to screw his best friend out of his stock when he got sick; not a real people person here, Greedy !@#@# is more like it!
It is even more true today. We layoff close to 140,000 IT people in the US every year and that just happens to be the visa limit. Hmmmmm. Every LIAR who has bribed er eh lobbied your representative into laying you off and ruining your life is representing your best interest right? So why did you vote for him/her again fool! I have been a consultant for 30 years in the IT field. I work for an Indian firm now after seven years of looking for work. So I work for a third of what I used to make and am considered very expensive by my new employer. Since 20K a year is huge even rich in India they have tiny salaries (average income is less than a 100 bucks a YEAR) by our standards.
So I have one question for Odumbo and the rest of the greedy liars and thieves running this country? When you outsource the remaining few American workers who is going to pay your salary? No taxes no money for you! Doh you guys and gals are pretty much blind from your personal greed! Or you would have figured that out long ago on your own!!!!!!
Same Question to the stupid from greed employers: when there is nobody working in the US who is going to buy your products? Doh! Do you really need me to point this out to you? Get what you pay for! Anybody this ignorant should not be working let alone running a company!!!

1. H-1 visa labor pays no Federal taxes!

2. H-1 visa labor are used to replace expensive US workers or prevent the hiring of 'expensive U.S. labor. For every H-1 visa holder there is one US worker going hungry!

3 These companies will not even hire our cheap kids coming out of school becuase of these expenses they do not have to pay to H-1 visa holders.
a. unemployment insurance
b. medical benefits
c. Workers comp insurance
d. social security

4 Greed, greed, greed, is all it is about. Cut payroll 20 million take 20 million bonus! SIMPLE
( AMR in bankruptcy, got big labor consessions last year but blew it on executive bonuses so now use bankruptcy to steal their underfunded pension plans and force even bigger labor cost reductions so the executives can have even bigger bonuses- got to love greed and corruption - or the American Way - This is the parent of American Airlines after all)

5 I see it every day, large groups of American workers getting pink slips to make room for the cheap imported H-1 labor.

6 Then once we train the off-shore person (no H-1 visa required and a lot cheaper) we move on to the next round of layoffs er eh the next cost cutting assignment.

Aren't we a bright TROLL! Details in anger get colorful to dramatize a point. Your point is? You do not think for yourself so like a little kid in school you make fun of what little you do understand! But actually contribute intelligent thought to a serious issue - way too far over your head!

I worked for 25+ years in IT the financial industry. Banks merging with each other drove me away after 4 job changes...all we were doing was changing banks and office locations following each other around, until the big giant bnk came to town and swallowed up the last 2 local banks. All jobs other than tellers and loan officers went out of town or out of state. Service went to hell, customers went elsewhere also (credit unions, smaller banks, etc.) I was 55 and was lucky to find a great employer that needed my IT skills in their lending business, although it was an 80 mile highway commute. Their ops closely mirrored a bank IT setup. Still here over 10 years later on working for the best employer I ever had, thinking about retirement, but not in a rush to leave. Try working for a smaller employer vs. the giants like Microsoft or Cisco. They value you as a hard worker and a person, not a number lost in the crowd.

Well I'm no math genius, but based on your post it sounds to me as though you were out of work around age 46. Perhaps your communication skills could use a little work, which may assist with your search for steady employment.
