America I                          America II

There is the America that is silently accepting reduced incomes as a unavoidable by-product of hard times and then there is the politically protected class that isn’t.

To be perfectly honest I wasn’t expecting to find computer science graduates as being an afflicted class when I went searching for jobs with reduced incomes. I’d expected to find real estate agents, waitresses relying on tips, and electricians still employed but getting less work.

So this time…. IT’S SERIOUS… smart geeks are seeing lower wages. That is clearly unacceptable. (-:

But to the bigger point…. if CS grads had a union then a) software would suck even more than it already does and b) they would have a bailout.
