    Step 3: Get hired

    And they were only going to offer OJT to those who had an associate's degree.
    Right...if you have an associates, you can get OJT. If you do an apprenticeship, that is OJT, then you can get hired on without the associates. It does still take a little effort on the part of the person looking for the job.

    No job is safe. But, hey, if people want to be so strong on the "free market economy," I guess we shouldn't try to do shit about that.
    Agree. They are insourcing as well.

    H1 visas are killing the American Tech worker. Which is the main reason the blood suckers running companies like facefuck & Google are pushing open borders.

    Pretty soon when you call for a plumber he may be an indentured slave from India. It'll still cost you as much. But, the company will pay him 1/2 the salary of Joe the plumber.

    Which is exactly why I'm not for laissez faire capitalism.

    Mjollnir and garhkal were asking why educational credentials or employer's requiring them should be adjusted (or [dis]incentivized) by the government.

    Think about this: in the case of a physician, why are hospitals and practices flying people in from China? Because there aren't enough qualified Americans. Why aren't there enough qualified Americans?

    Well... you have to complete a pre-med curriculum as part of your bachelor's program, followed by four years of med school. After you get your MD, you're looking at anywhere from three to ten years of residency, depending on your specialty.

    Sure, you get paid for residency and the money isn't bad at all. However... you can't go to med school part time. If you enter med school at the age of 22, you won't finish until you're 26. During those years, you're a full-fledged adult with full-fledged adult responsibilities. You've got to put a roof over your own head, clothes on your own back, and food on your own table. Oh yeah, and you have to pay for med school too.

    How many Americans can do that? Not many. Mom and dad has been waiting your whole life to kick you the fuck out of their house so they can go back to acting like teenagers again. You could always find a sugar mama to support you while you're in med school, but good luck with that.

    Since there aren't enough Americans to pull that off... you could always bring in a guy from a communist country who has never had to worry about any of that.

    So how do we keep hospitals and practices from resorting to that? We... find a way to ensure that there are enough Americans getting the credentials.
