Sick Profession

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Attention  SEAINT

Reading recent posts  on the SICK  PROFESSION,   let me offer  some additional  reading.

Structural engineers have been relatively fortunate with the downturn in the economy.

What with infrastructure rebuilds,   new  construction,  building upgrades (terrorist- security retrofits)  we've generally not been impacted  by massive layoffs like in the other professions  (Electrical Engineers,  IT,  manufacturing).

But all it still not well.   I  think  several of you on this list want to deny  what is happening  here in the US.

With that said I direct  to these commentaries.

You  may think all is well,  but their  are  others raising  serious concerns.
You may deny the the H-1B, L-1  visas program has not  an impact to structural engineers  

But read the following:
