While the Wall Street Journal tries to claim software engineer is the best job, whistle blower Jay Palmer is blowing the lid off the dire straights most American technical workers are facing today. We have brazen labor arbitrage through abuse of the United States foreign guest worker system. American workers with college degrees, high skills and years of experience, are either fired or not hired. Systemically U.S. STEM labor is displaced and replaced by cheap foreign guest workers, some on immigration visas which are not even legal.With all the apparent concern about illegal immigrants and all the resources put into preventing them from coming into the US, it's obvious that government authorities are looking the other way at these cost savers and profit enhancers for US corporations.
Although CBS failed to inquire about government collusion with this scam, I have to credit them with this rare exposé of this practice which suggests the hypocrisy of US politicians about their concern for US workers.
