How Legal Immigration Failed Silicon Valley | TechCrunch
Our immigration system hinders entrepreneurship, innovation and productivity. Success in the tech industry, where whole new job categories are created overnight, requires deep familiarity with trends, products and technologies. Learning opportunities abound — if you’re willing to transition to new roles, educate yourself, work on different products or switch companies altogether. Building your own startup, or even joining one, can be the best career move; it offers remarkable potential for growth by wearing multiple hats in an expanding organization. The labor market benefits from this flexibility not just with an improved and adaptable workforce, but also one that creates jobs. The immigration process impedes all these possibilities. [...] [ reset process when switching companies ] [...] And that’s not even the worst part. If you get laid off, you must leave the country. Immediately. [...] Try telling your VC you spent $25,000 of their $1 million funding on immigration fees

Iain Duncan Smith criticises employers over disability employment gap | Society | The Guardian
Experts welcome emphasis on improving support for jobless disabled people who want to work but say speech was light on detail [...] The work and pensions secretary, Iain Duncan Smith, said in a speech on Monday that he wanted to halve the employment gap between disabled and non-disabled people by reforming the incapacity benefit assessment system and improving the levels of support for jobless disabled people who wanted to work. [...] In the speech, which members of the media were not allowed to attend, // << PR, spin to justify to reduce payment for ESA, disability and sickness payments - in the future - to JSA levels (which u hardly can survive long on). They already cut ESA work related activity group to JSA level. Plus their neoliberal policy take, that employees should have to pay into their own unemployment fund. Dismantling step by step the welfare, public service & social service Europe is known for & which actively reduces poverty trap and inequality. // Equality Act 2010

Robert Reich: America is a nation of Amazons -
before we celebrate the dawn of a new era, keep two basic truths in mind. First, these new policies apply only to a tiny group considered “talent” – highly educated and in high demand. They’re getting whatever perks firms can throw at them in order to recruit and keep them. “Netflix’s continued success hinges on us competing for and keeping the most talented individuals in their field,” writes Tawni Cranz, Netflix’s chief talent officer. [...] the vast majority of American workers – considered easily replaceable. Employers treat replaceable workers as costs to be cut, not as assets to be developed. Replaceable workers almost never get paid family leave, they get a few paid sick days, and barely any vacation time. [ three tier economy, those that are replacable, those who are somewhat not, and those who you can't easily replace - the 1% - reflective of CEO pay in parts ]

Access To Startup Skills Threatened By U.K. Visa Review | TechCrunch
[ unable to move fast, execute fast ] Startups of course rely on filling vacancies by bringing skills from abroad — given it may be the only way to obtain relevant expertise when you’re working in such nascent areas. [...] According to the MAC’s call for evidence, the proposed changes being considered by the government include some potentially radical measures — such as: significantly raising the salary threshold; restricting which job roles are eligible; and removing the right for dependents of visa holders to be able to work in the U.K. [ salaries threshold, NHS already cried out loud foul as many foreign nurses would have to leave it threshold would be set at about 34-35 minumum earnings. ] [...] “The majority don’t… and several of the respondents said it’s already too complicated and expensive for us to go through that process,” he notes. [...] “populist politics” could pose a threat the U.K.’s digital economy [... quality of life in London less than in other US cities ...]

If Schools Don't Change, Robots Will Bring On a 'Permanent Underclass': Report | Motherboard
via The respondents overwhelmingly agree that this lovely future where robots do the work and humans design the robots and everyone has leisure time and lots of money only exists in a fantasy future where the school systems pump out a shitload of Elon Musks and Sergey Brins—or, at the very least, people who can reliably work at the companies those guys own. [...] only the best-educated humans will compete with machines [...] and education systems [around the world] are still sitting students in rows & columns, teaching them to keep quiet and memorize what is told to them, preparing them for life in a 20th century factory.” // Rise of Service Jobs (dominance) in USA, even post-GFC. // ADD:
