Once Aryan Skynet Goes Live It Doesn't Matter Who Pulled The Switch
This smug shit calls Americans stupid and lazy, but it’s not even true!
Another notable aspect of Michael’s visit to my class was that he recalled for us how a Microsoft official had told him privately that the firm has tons of applicants, but that it rejects most of them by applying an automatic computer algorithm, with no human involvement at all. One student was very surprised by this, and seemed to find the news a bit distressing. Actually this is a common practice in the industry, but Michael made the important point that this information is in stark contrast to Microsoft’s testimony to Congress that qualified American applicants just don’t exist in sufficient numbers.
American engineering students get to see first hand how lawyers, liberals, and software tycoons conspire to destroy their job prospects.
But to me the highlight of the class came when my UCD faculty colleague Phil Martin, a prominent researcher on immigration issues, showed the infamous Cohen and Grigsby video, in which a major Pittsburgh law firm showed clients how to avoid the requirement to first seek qualified Americans to fill a position before sponsoring a foreign worker for a green card.
I had had no idea that Phil would show this video, but it certainly had an impact on the students, a number of whose facial expressions seemed to convey that they were profoundly shocked. (Note by the way that the videos filmed by that law firm also showed how employers game the system to circumvent the prevailing wage requirements, which apply to both green cards and H-1B visas, and which are below market wage to begin with,)
We need to take power and nationalize the computer industry and the internet and seize the wealth of these software tycoons. Deport them to India with NOTHING! I have a dream!
