-Bill Gates Blows off Immigration Rules-
Exposing the Myth of a Shortage of “Skilled” Programmers
Vancouver, B.C. is a wonderful place to go fishing, and apparently, the founder of Microsoft thinks so, too! But Bill Gates' nose is growing again…
The Monopoly Man from Microsoft, Bazillionairre Bill Gates, has been crying like a banshee for an “unlimited” H1-b visa cap to import foreign workers for jobs that American programmers allegedly don’t even exist to do.
Meanwhile, Silicon Valley companies Oracle and Cisco (Google was conspicuously left out of this interview) repeat the deceptive mantra “we don’t have enough skilled workers” below:
Omm...Let me remind you that what companies like Oracle, Google and Cisco really mean when they say they don’t have enough skilled workers is that they don’t have enough CHEAP bodies to stack on the slagheap of feudaldom. How, praytell, can a smug and arrogant corporate frat boy build an empire if h/she is forced to employ an educated, experienced, smart peer who dares have the nerve to request an adjusted cost of living salary? Worse, that peer might question the status quo in such a way as to make the frat boy slave driver in training yearn for unsuspecting underlings a few castes beneath him…
Anyway, Microsoft will open a software development center in Canada by the end of the year, a move that will enable the software giant to hire more foreign workers and to bypass U.S. immigration laws.
In the holy name of Profits over People, corporofascism has enraptured our Congress and that giant sucking sound you hear knows no bounds to help plunder the pockets of American programmers and decrease professional wages across the board in a town near you!
