Funny.. I read the same article.. which happens to be written by an INDIAN :/.
Excuse me for wanting to get paid *fairly* as an IT person. Sure 40,000$ a year is "too much" for a cooperation to pay me when an indian will work for 10,000$
Don't worry though you get what you pay for.
As to that "no child left behind" bs.. Sure that works for first level tech support however, when it comes to development of *real* applications and not just basic trouble shooting, the entire idea falls apart.
With that said, I'm still going for a degree in computer science. I want the job because I *love* computer science and I will give *anyone* a run for their money after I graduate.
Oh btw. I am not saying people aren't "lazy" in the field however, keep in mind that a good programmer will be worth *alot* more than he makes to his company.
