Re: Shortage of US Engineers and Programmers is over!!!!
"...Actually, the H1B Visa were introduce to find cheaper technical workers and supress US technical staff salaries. There was not shortage of US technical skilled employees."

 

@BarretP25    Couldn't agree more.  It was all about cheap labor and unfortunately it still is.   And these same companies will complain about underperformance ?

How about freezing these undeserved CEO bonuses and paying people for what they are worth ?

Microsoft still very much in mobile phone business
Although MS won't be making cell phones, it is still very much in the mobile phone business.

 

It owns Skype. So any device capable of running Skype is in essence a mobile phone -- and Skype is not tied to a carrier.

 

If Microsoft positions itself correctly, it can own a mobile communications market share that may go beyond iOS and Android.

Shortage of US Engineers and Programmers is over!!!!
Now Microsoft should inform their bribed DC politicians and paid US medias that Microsoft, IBM, HP, GE, Intel,, are laying off the engineers and programmers and they have surplus so these crook politicians and media spokeksman close the H!B Visa....

Actually, the H1B Visa were introduce to find cheaper technical workers and supress US technical staff salaries. There was not shortage of US technical skilled employees.
