88. well a lot of computer guys have poor negotiating/social skills
Edited on Fri Dec-02-11 07:13 PM by pitohui
i wouldn't even call my husband any great negotiator but at least he had the good sense to realize that he needed to be in an hourly position, because he saw other programmers going into jobs where they were not paid overtime and they were worked like dogs to the point where their hourly pay was min wage or less...i think some programmers have so little social skills or ability to interview for jobs that they will eat any kind of shit rather than speak up for themselves...he started working in the 1980s and pay for programmers has only gotten shittier for most people, of course, there are the rare people who are microsoft millionaires or whatnot but for most it's just a job and not a particularly well paid one
