    Truer words are not spoken. I work for a corporation doing that same thing. I am beginning to believe Abby Hoffman and Lenny Bruce were correct back in the 70's.

    There's no problem for young workers to find corporations here in America that are willing to shed their highly paid senior employees, divide up their 401K matching funds among senior management and replace that worker with a vastly under-paid young worker that is expected to do the same job and work as hard if not harder for 1/3 the salary previously paid for the same position.

    There are plenty of temporary positions that American Corporations are extremely happy to push young workers as hard as they can under the unwritten promise that those that keep up to a impossible work schedule will be rewarded to a permanent position. Its a cold and long running joke to the staff in those corporations as they watch poor Jane and Johnny running their butt's off in a futile gesture for the mythical permanent position.
