lawyers, guns, and money

Oh wait, that's a song by Warren Zevon

I found the clip below referenced in a Business Week story on the debate over a tech worker shortage. I must agree with article's description of today's tech job market. Corporations today prefer contract work over permanent positions. 10 to 15 years ago, I don't remember it being like that at all. Maybe it's a cycle, maybe not.

Now I see this video (it was first in the news last June) and I realize that many of the job listings are FAKE. Corporations place these ads to satisfy the requirements before they hire the desired H-1B visa temporary worker. It's all about money.

Mix the money with the lawyers - and someone might pull a gun.

I must warn you that this clip may stir-up some strong emotional opinions.
