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

What I’m really thinking: the recruitment consultant | Life and style | The Guardian
I work in a culture that views employees’ problems with suspicion: the woman who resigned because of bullying is a “troublemaker”; the man who couldn’t find work for six months is “lazy”; the candidate with depression is deemed a “liability”. We are trained to judge, and I am truly sorry to those I will never call .

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

Accountancy firm scraps education 'barrier' - BBC News
[ + education path bias ] In a bid to boost workplace diversity, Ernst and Young (EY) will choose which applicants to interview based on their performance in online tests. School-leavers have until now needed the equivalent of three Bs at A-level and graduate applicants a 2:1 degree. Qualifications "will no longer act as a barrier to getting a foot in the door," said Maggie Stilwell of EY. In May another major accountancy firm, PricewaterhouseCoopers, announced it would no longer use A-level grades as a way of selecting graduate recruits. EY has gone one step further by removing the requirement for a minimum degree classification for graduates and hiding all details of schools and universities from the recruiters until the very end of the process so that interviews are carried out "blind". [...] "screening students based on academic performance alone was too blunt an approach to recruitment". [...] no evidence of correlation between academic success and future [professional] success
