I've been telling my fellow engineers that for decades now. Back in the '90s when a lot of engineers were telling me how they were going to stick it to the union guys by outsourcing their jobs I told them then engineers are next. It's horrible to have been proven right time and time again over the last few decades.

Can't help stupid. You always see a lot of these arrogant asses brag, "My job can't be outsourced" followed by all kinds of anti-labor, anti-union bullshit.

Next thing, they're on TV or at a Congressional hearing crying about how their company hired H1B workers and forced them to train them before being fired.

They just don't get it.

They are finally starting to get it. Too bad so many had to lose their jobs first. Then there's the fact that no one in engineering has had a real raise in the last 20 years. Being good at math and science doesn't make up for being ignorant of history!

They are right, though. They cannot be outsourced. And how would a union have helped? "Stop firing us or we go on strike!"

This is about the traitors in government who have sold out to foreigners. Who believe they are above the law, above the Constitution.

"But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security."

This problem cannot be solved with labor unions. It will probably take the rifle and the bomb to fix.
