Low pay leads to outsourcing.
In David Thornburg's letter to the editor (Letters, July 2007)
on the ISTE standards, he states that U.S. companies cannot find enough
engineers. That is corporate America at its worst, and for DISTRICT
ADMINISTRATION to buy into that line is really a disservice to your
readers. Why don't you challenge that subject? Referring to the
100,000 engineering jobs and only 65,000 engineers available, the bottom
line is money. Companies do not want to pay a decent salary. That's
the hidden agenda. Corporate America wants Americans to get their
college education, which could mean a debt of $50,000, and yet companies
want to start them at the lowest salary available.
