"such as five years of experience with a three-year-old technology -- as a reflection of the fact that the job posting is there to satisfy the statutory requirement in the green card process to consider U.S. workers before hiring a cheaper foreign worker."

Wrong. The person they are applying GC for in turn has to show proof that they have experience for 5 years for a technology that is only 3 years old. If that tech didn't exist for the last 3 years, then they can't have it. They can't just "lie" about it either. They will need written confirmed and verifiable ceriticates from former employers or coursework to support the documentation. The thing is if they called someone for an interview, it means they found at least ONE US citizen that met the minimum requirements. Not maximum but minimum. Since that US citizens resume will in turn have to submitted with the GC application, most will not do the GC application at all. Which makes the H1Bs PERM application null and void. They probably called the US citizen so that they wont HAVE to sponser the H1B's GC. Employers aren't just trying to screw US citizens, they are trying to screw H1Bs too. The job doesn't exist for the US citzen, but it wont for the H1 after 6 years either.

You mean that companies undercut potential good programmers with offshored our H1B visa people, primarily from India. How can you sit there and say that a person can not make so much money, but on the other hand say that there is a right to free enterprise? What do you think this is when somebody invests at least 4 years and a hundred thousand dollars for school (loans, lost income, spent savings, parents money) so that they can work for some ungrateful corporations who thinks that they are a bunch of cows to be herded, with about as much sense as them! The only thing that the last election did is make everybody aware of the situation!

Of course, we will probably never know if they are destroying it because of ineptness and philosophy, or because they want to destroy the U.S. piece by piece!

Title 8, Section 1182 INADMISSIBLE ALIENS says ALL foreign workers are illegal and inelligible to work in US as long as Americans are out of work. IT'S THE LAW. Start suing companies that deny you jobs and hire illegals under this law since all of them are illegal.

These politicians say that we are a nation of laws when they are locking up millions for using drugs, but they do not enforce the laws on immigration, regulations (except against the little guy), or collusion. The game is fixed and the government is in on it now!

Yes, for so many years the American public believed that the stockholders owned these companies. They own the premium stock that gets paid first in case of a great loss. Not only that but they have control of the company and they are able to use this stockholder money any way that they want. It is mainly a gamble on the part of the public that they can be invested in a company that will make them some money. Now, these companies have figured out how to pay this money out, but then to get it all back by working in unison with other monied interests to cause recessions and other damage to not only the American economy, but the world economy!

You are right and that is exactly what neo-classical, voodoo, 'conservative' economics is all about. It is where bankers control the money and the economy and every 10 years or so they abscond with as much money as they can steal - legally. We used to use this system in the U.S. before the great depression when it was called classical economics. Laissez-Faire is a theoretical concept that does not actually exist in reality and has nothing to do with classical economics. The main reason that they quit using this system and went to a more controlled, scientific system was that there was a big depression about every 10 or 15 years where everybody lost all of their money. This is where hiding money under the mattress and you can't trust banks sayings came from. The conservatives today are just pure money that is worldwide in scope and they are like a giant vacuum cleaner that will suck up every bit of money that you have if they can. IT workers were paid a heck of a lot more in the 1990's than they are now too, when we also didn't have an overabundance of them.

A lot of companies are posting fake job ads just so they can say they interviewed Americans while the whole time they are employing cheap foreign workers or shipping the jobs offshore.

Yeah, job searches tend to take longer when you have a massively oversupplied labor force and 30 million people out of work. The solution is to stop oversupplying the labor force - stop importing more foreign workers and send those already here home. After all in 1998 and 2001 that was the original agreement anyway - they would only be here for Y2K and then go home in 2002 when it was over.

A decade later they are not only still here, but they have taken over and are deliberately denying jobs to Americans.

Dino-elites feel threatened by IT and the internet because it's a system of information they can't control and don't understand. Plus we create economic booms that enable people to make a lot of $ and pay off their debt. If you're able to pay cash for cars and houses like in the late 90s then you don't need a LOAN from a bank do you? And since our country is controlled and run by bankers, all American IT workers and high salaries are a threat to the bankers. QED.
