This is mostly true, however slightly undermined by some of the less than stellar level of competence shown by some of their replacements.
Also for "useless" read "unproven" i.e. people with good technical skills, maybe a degree or similar but no industry experience.
I too get a lot of calls and have no problems finding work, but I have 15 years experience - so I'm not competing against the production line, lowly paid, subsidised imports.
