I interviewed for a new job today. Little history: I'm a large business software developer... that means I'm above programmer, above senior programmer. I have advanced programming skills. So currently I'm working a job on the top floor of a downtown Denver high-rise for a large petroleum services company (much like Enron without the scandal... yet.) I love the job but it's run by "green card" Indians. (people from India for the clueless) They are the top managers and they only hire on Indians for the permanent positions with benefits and stock options but all of us Americans don't get anything besides a bi-monthly paycheck. No paid vacation, no medical, no dental, no paid holidays NO NOTHING. But these "green card" guys are being brought in permanently in a short time and are buying 1/2 million dollar houses in Denver while we Americans are treated like foreigners. So I interview with a medium sized company today. I have an exceptional work history and have been a key member on many ground moving projects. The guy at the potential company looks at my resume and then proceeds to look for anything he can to belittle me. I'm sorry but I've been a shining star at most my jobs and just recently decided to move back to Colorado. The guy treats me like ****. I think he's hoping he can offer me the job, I'll take it but for a "raped in the mouth and butt" pay rate. I'm sorry... but I will work at 7/11 before I will let anyone get my skill set for an insulting pay rate. I'm talking less than half of what I normally make and what a fresh college grad would expect at his first job. College guys... this is what you have to look forward to in the 21st century. Maybe I should just start picking lettuce or mowing lawns in place of the illegals since that's where the country is focused on and not the real threat. Am I the only one seeing this...?
