Oh that's definitely a problem. Lots of resume fluff and outright lies. That's why you'll be completing a test as part of the interview process.

But for a good fit someone here on a visa isn't getting paid any less.

I think the issue is the leftist bias, not the algorithms themselves.

Look, I respect you, and you know I'm not just some tech-defending liberal. But my experiences in this area greatly differ from what you've presented in your original post. I think we'll just have to agree to disagree on this one.

They already do beyond taxes. Especially Google, Facebook, and Microsoft.

You will never get significant wage growth with an endless supply of foreign workers. With 3% unemployment these companies biggest concern should be finding labor. They should be hiring and TRAINING or paying for schooling for American workers to code, develop, etc. just like what is happening in the trucking industry. My cousin just got hired by Pet smart to be a dog groomer making $17 an hour, she has no grooming experience at all, they are sending her away to their own grooming training school. That’s what should be happening in the tech industry.

I said beyond taxes. Microsoft funds coding bootcamps and magnet tech schools. We should push to educate as many people as we can, but not everyone has what it takes.

We have things like tuition reimbursement. My own college was paid for by my entry level job in tech's tuition reimbursement. All sorts of STEM outreach to schools. I even hear ads on the radio regularly advertising coding schools. We're trying. There's a cultural lack of interest.

So why do the CORPORATE TECH COMPANIES refuse to pay taxes in the communities they have business operations??

Focusing on SI here, they absolutely to pay taxes in their community. Not sure why you think they don't...

I just find it strange that, you, someone who is pro-outsourcing does a full 180 on taxes here...
