Days like this, I ought to just bite the bullet and give in but I’m too hard headed #h1b

Like everybody else, I was a high paid software developer.

But then companies like USAA and Rackspace decided that they could make more money using H-1B’s so they threw the American citizens under the bus.

And our department of veterans affairs continues to run over us.

The only thing this displaced american software developer has to sell is life itself thanks to the #h1b and so called patriots like USAA and Rackspace

My land is more important to me than life itself.

You won’t understand that if you’ve never been homeless or nearly homeless.

I have to come up with $625.00 by tomorrow.

Anybody willing to take a chance on that and lend me the money and give me at least 90 days to pay it back?

The texas vets land bank won’t.

The gi home loan bill won’t.

I’m not willing to rob a bank or steal.

And nobody will hire me that will pay enough to make the payments and put me a shed on it.

So tell me, what other option do I have?

Surrounding yourself with “Yes” men and women will destroy your business #H1B #caste

As Fujioka had done at his prior companies, at Fuhu he hired childhood pals to populate many of the company’s senior posi­tions. He also cherry-picked a group called the Partnership, some 30 employees who committed themselves to the collective good of the company. With that honor came the promise of equity, special access to Fujioka himself, and a walkie-talkie–which Fujioka’s assistant could use to send for his staff. “It was another form of knowing he could get anybody to drop every­thing at a moment’s notice,” says one former senior executive.

The Partnership provided a powerful incentive for employee motivation, but it also created an organizational caste system. “Just imagine you’re in a high school, and all the cool kids get to sit at this cool table,” says one former nonpartner employee. “If you’re not part of that circle, you don’t get looked at and you don’t get talked to.” In this atmosphere, rumors flew of special perks for Partnership members. Fujioka denies there was any­thing improper about any of the favors he doled out. “We negotiated [auto] leases, and I’m pretty sure there were times when we helped people with their payments,” says Fujioka, noting that he gave one pregnant partner three bonus months of paid maternity leave. Jealousy and gossip from nonpartners, he says, were disheartening. “Maybe what they don’t understand is that the person [who received extra maternity leave] had two mis­carriages, and it’s probably because she was working 13 hours a day. Those kinds of things,” he says. “And did it ever come out of pocket? A lot. That’s why I hesitate–was that Fuhu or was that me? Because I think 80 percent of it was me.”

“Maybe there’s such thing as $20 million or $30 million between friends. But $100 million? I don’t think they’re friends any longer.”

Meanwhile, loyalty was best proved to Fujioka by self-sacrifice. He expected employees to work as doggedly for him as he had for the Huis, who, he says, once made him pull several consecutive all-nighters to write a business plan. John Hui’s exercises “were very painful,” says Fujioka. “It was really about obligation, responsibility, and servitude.” Signs of disloyalty, real or perceived, could flare Fujioka’s temper. In one instance, after a junior staffer privately asked the head of HR when he could collect overtime and take vacation, he was dragged before Fujioka and a roomful of partners for a vote on whether he should be fired. The meeting, the staffer later alleged in a wrongful-termination suit that was settled, “was done with oppression and malice” and resulted in “depression, anxiety, humiliation, and emotional distress.” Employees say they even­tually learned not to challenge the views of their micromanager boss. “He wasn’t listening to the smart, talented people that he had hired,” says one former staffer. “Instead, he’d listen to the group that really consisted only of yes-men.”

Sadly, several of my projects in the last 10 years have involved things like this.

I wouldn’t play ball with crap like this, so I paid the price.

Would I do it again?

I just did about 2 months ago.

Why do I tell these stories?

Millions of Former Middle Class Workers lives have been destroyed by the tech industry in their demand for non-immigrant guest workers that will work very long hours for little money when you figure up the hours versus the pay.

They will yell from the roof tops that they can’t find qualified people.

I am calling them a liar and this is my way of showing what is happening to damned fine Americans across our country.

Trust me, it is NOT just me that this is happening too.

I simply am one that is willing to tell my story because our silence enables this madness.

The following picture will show you the most demanded jobs as documented with the H-1B Hunting License Applications that are filed with the U.S. Government.

I have most of the skills, knowledge and wisdom to fill ANY of those top 10 computer jobs in the Top 10 Occupations.

Yet I can’t buy an interview.

So I fight my battle here and live like I do because I believe it is time to quit enabling this madness

The Displaced American Software Developers Outdoor Hobo Kitchen as a result of #H1B non-immigrant guest workers being imported

Many will ask why I tell these stories.

It is very simple.

Our silence enables companies like USAA, Rackspace, etc. hire Non-Immigrant Guest workers on H-1B visas instead of Americans in America.

Don’t believe me, Click on the following link for Rackspace to see the H-1B Hunting Licenses that they have purchased in Fiscal Year 2016.

As if that is NOT Bad Enough, lets look at San Antonio in general.

Not any better in Austin either.

I think you get the picture.

If you’re wondering if the same thing is happening in your area, send me an email to and I will send you a link showing what is happening in your area.

What is sad is I have the skills that these companies say they can’t find, and as you can tell by my websites, my skills are current and I’m one of the best analysts, project managers out there and I can’t buy an interview which leaves me doing what you see in this picture.

Folks, at this point I don’t want much.

Just something like this to call home.


And some work that will allow me to pay my $625.00 land payment which is due on the 29th of October (yep, I am VERY WORRIED)

And the ability to take the battle to those that are doing this to Americans in America by sending our jobs to other countries and importing non-immigrant guest workers to take the remaining jobs.

I realize that many of you reading this are not in a position to help me with work or a donation, but I do pray that you will tell your stories so that these people doing this to us will not be enabled any longer.
