Microsoft and American jobs Microsoft and American jobs redsss (Programmer) (OP) 29 Apr 05 16:33 Looks like Brother Bill is still busy trying to put American IT workers out of work.http://www.cnn.com/2005/TECH/biztech/04/27/gates.immigrants.ap/index.html RE: Microsoft and American jobs keithb03 (Programmer) 29 Apr 05 18:06 Sounds like Brother Bill Needs a reality check. Maybe he should contact his local unemployment office the next time he needs to hire some IT talent. RE: Microsoft and American jobs redsss (Programmer) (OP) 29 Apr 05 18:20 How full of it can he get? "The whole idea of the H1-B visa thing is, don't let too many smart people come into the country"Yeah right! I sincerely hope capital hill doesn't buy into that BS. But its amazing what you can do with deep pockets. RE: Microsoft and American jobs langleymass (MIS) 29 Apr 05 23:29 As a free market radical, I don't really believe in such limitations either. But he needs to stop spreading the lies that there is a shortage of skilled people.How exactly do you get skilled people? Almost all of my skills come from experience. How did I get experience? I got it because I convinced someone to hire me and then keep me.If Bill wants good people, he has the power to create them.These corporate guys have created the conditions they claim to deplore.
