Who'd work in IT
I don't know why anyone would want a career in IT when you can earn considerably more as a plumber.
I for one,. am fed up with being paid peanuts for my 20 years experience and qualifications, and the constant battle to keep myself educated, up-to-date.
It seems to me, the only way you can earn a decent wage that reflects your qualifications and experience is to become a contractor or work for an investment bank.
With the increased pressure from companies to outsource, we are quite literally losing our jobs to Indians, and this is applying downwards pressure on salaries.
My employer now, we have more Indians in our department than indigenous whites. Some are permanent employees, some are contractors based in the UK, others are part of our indian operation that come here for a couple of months to train up and for knowledge transfer - where we transfer our knowledge to them and they take our jobs but carry out the job in India - and we employ Indian based outsourcing companies too.
The IT industry in the UK is seriously going downhill.
