And fuck MS and all those cheap, ageist assholes corporations. Saying there aren't enough qualified people in any sector in society is bullshit. It's entirely about cheap labour politics. This why people need to get political. And this is the case for unions.


Yeah because unions are just bastions of liberty and aren't full of corruption and greed. Unions are half the reason these corps look for cheaper labor in the first place.

H-1B Visas are there to give offshore workers your job. Of course companies want more of them, its cheap labor. Much better for companies than employing qualified local workers.

We live in a global society. Work for less, or deal with it in other ways. You WILL have to deal with it, as the world has become a global village and for all intents and purposes the borders between us are shrinking or dissapearing altogether.

That goes both ways though, companies can't expect consumers to keep buying the same volume of goods and services if they have to compete with low wage workers from other countries. People come here seeking our living standard, not just the labor and we can't sustain it when people who have literally no standards set the status quo.

Salon: "The Irish Independent reports that grocery giant TESCO has strapped electronic armbands to their warehouse workers to measure their productivity, tracking their actions so closely that management knows when they briefly pause to drink from a water fountain or take a bathroom break. These unforgivable lapses in productivity impact workers' performance score, which management then apparently uses to terrify them into working faster."

WTF Britain? It just keeps getting more and more Big Brother every day. I'd tell them to stuff their armband up their ass and fuckoff while doing it!
