14. Damn right. Many of us tech workers have to take contract jobs now...

... instead of getting a decent permanent job as employers (with all of these H-1B guest workers) can staff their companies with American contractors or H-1B permanent workers (or those hired as contractors from "body shops") at a lot less salary.

I'm making about 30% less than I was a few years back after having been going through being unemployed like many of us have in the technology sector.

STOP THE CORPORATE CORRUPTION BULLSHIT!!!

NO to H-!B Visa expansion.

It was supposed to only be for employees that had unique qualifications that we don't have (like languages combined with certain tech skills). It is now set up to pay people a lot less with the body shops!
