Well, speaking from someone who isn't in this industry yet, I'm on the fence. I'm all for letting people do what they want. But, in certain instances, we have to take care of our own first. Then, we accommodate all others.
A bunch of replies say that there is no real IT shortage, just a shortage of employers who are willing to pay decent salaries for a standard 40 hour week. I know there are tons of people graduating from schools with IT related degrees (even from diploma-mills such as DeVry and such). So I can't even imagine a shortage.
But do people on work visas really work for less and for longer hours? I don't think they pay taxes, either? I would speak my opinions on that, too, but that's another area I know nothing about.
Don't mind that beginner's tab. I didn't realize that I clicked that.
