Well, I like to invest in tech stocks. Bad idea for a student, right?
Nortel crashed and burned a few years back, cost me an arm and a leg, now Intel takes a dip (again). Why?
If you answered "the US government", you are right (and may move on to the 200 dollar question)!
It's because the US government won't let the companies be. Let market force dictate where and how the company find thier workers, please. It benefits us all (in the long run). It forces our low-skill workers to work harder and it forces our high-skill workers to work better. "Cracking down" on company's hiring of tempo workers is not the way to help our economy. In fact, if the company REALLY need skilled workers and they are not allowed to hire tempo's from India and China, they would just set their research labs there. That's even worse !!! We would lose all the jobs !!!
I love you, Intel... please RAISE again !
