No Job, No Money, No Point

December 11th, 2013by overtime

I live in the USA.  I have a Bachelor’s and a Master’s degree in Computer Science.  Over the twenty-five years I have worked as software engineer, I have been laid off and replaced by lower cost H-1B visa employees six times.  I have found no work after my last lay off.  I live in a country where anyone who is not a millionaire is treated like garbage.  Any STEM employee over 50 is considered too expensive to employ, as employers can bring in an unlimited number of foreign workers on H-1B visas who are under 35 and have lower health insurance costs.  Why continue to live in a country that hates its citizens and is bringing in thousands of H-1B visa employees when we have over a million citizens with STEM degrees who are unemployed?  “From 1999 to 2010, the suicide rate among Americans ages 35 to 64 rose by nearly 30 percent” according to http://www.nytimes.com/2013/05/03/health/suicide-rate-rises-sharply-in-us.html?_r=0 .  Our government’s only answer is to increase the number of H-1B visas and put more citizens out of work.
