Money and respect

Letter to the editor

Your FCW article today ignores the simplest solutions of all. Just have

the employers (1) pay big money for IT workers and (2) give them respect.

If the employers paid enough, the training would take care of itself.

If the employers respected their people, they would give them time enough

off so that they could get their own training.

If the employers paid enough, the process improvement would be more attractive

in reducing their costs, and they would pay for that too.

If the employers gave their people respect, they would not have to move

every few years and waste so much of their experience with business rules.

Instead, you suggest H-1B programs and such that are nothing more than a

license to victimize foreign workers.
