Michael R. Royce, Concord, N.H.

When I purchased this classic 1963 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud III, I was doing very well as a computer software developer with over 20 years experience.

NOW, I have been a school janitor for over 8 years because I can not find a job in the computer industry.

There has been much news over the years of employers not being able to find very highly skilled qualified workers in the computer industry. Employers have testified for the need to bring in HB1 foreign workers. Not true at all! Hundreds of thousands of us very qualified US workers can not find "real jobs" and thus our American economy continues to spin downward.

You sir, have hit the nail on the head. I wonder how many Americans were against the ridiculous amnesty for illegal immigrants, H1B visas, and preferential treatment of companies as though they were people.

Companies are run by people - they aren't people. It's a shame to see people such a respectable skill set left out of an industry because nobody wants to pay them living wages - nevermind competitive wages anymore. The US is quickly becoming a third world country as it's overrun with no-skill illegal immigrants, has unfunded schools, and demands taxpayer money be used to fund churches that seek to destroy the human rights of women.

I weep for the death of this country but it's coming and you'll see a massive immigration of Americans with skills leaving the US and renouncing citizenship. Honestly, how long are these bad decisions against the interests of the people of this country going to be made without dire repercussions? Americans will start rioting and when they do it's going to be a very fast and ugly downward spiral.
