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

BBC News - 'Colossal' spending cuts to come, warns IFS
Current Austerity focus is running UK economy into the ground. Not towards the futures. Yes to cut waste. Yes to trim here and there. But there is no sight of investment into the future; ie pushing apprenticeships and industrial (STEM, research) practical skill set (dual college & university courses modelled after Germany), living wage, reduction on reliance on service sector and consumption. There is no inspiration. No future in his head. Just managing the status quo. Moving the pieces. Just like any other career politician. &! http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-30318870

Immigration is about talent, not costs | AeroFS
via https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=8687804 << comments. &! Interns get paid in Silicon Valley related to STEM! if qualified and "talented" and "fits." http://www.vox.com/xpress/2014/11/24/7275635/tech-intern-salary &! So interns cost ~6-8k/m @ SF/Palo Alto/Silicon Valley bc of cost of living!? ... in parts. But also bc of war for talent. Very different to Berlin Start-Up Scene (cost of living, talent & skills, competition for it & just starting out - developing ecosystem to support "Start-up Scene").

dctp.tv | dalia-martin - slicing up the value chain, flatter org chart, Germany needs more uni grads, --- Germany needs more liberal immigration policy for highly qualified people with degrees and --- education policy needs to capture ALL possible candidates. Anreiz fuer higher education. // Germany NEEDS immigration - because of demographic bubble. Period. Either get people in Germany and the jobs of the Future. Or let the jobs go away to where the human capital and cognitive resources are. Period. // self-awareness of women is through the ranks lower compared to men. it comes from society, media, childhood, parenting. // thus lack of strong women. lack of Female Founders too. // Experiment showed:: Women react discouraged during competition with Men, but competition Woman-Woman shows no such signs of lack of wanting to compete. ... WHY!? Do we have to split-up schools again - All Girls Schools Only? Or Do we just have to change girls perception of the world early on!? //

Mehr als Geld und gute Worte — die bank - Zeitschrift für Bankpolitik und Praxis
Denn über den Unternehmen hängt wie eine Gewitterwolke der Megatrend „Demographischer Wandel“. Was Bundesministern und Rentenversicherern graue Haare beschert, ist längst auch Aufgabe für die Human Resources Bereiche. Weil in vielen Industrieländern der Zahl junger Menschen schrumpft sowie der Anteil Älterer und Alter dramatisch zunimmt, verschärft sich die Konkurrenz der Arbeitgeber um die besten Talente.
.
Mitarbeiterentwicklung und Talent-Management sind längst strategische Aufgaben, um die Prosperität des Unternehmens in der Zukunft zu sichern, junge Talente zu finden, zu entwickeln und zu binden.
.
Schon seit Anfang der 1990er Jahre lassen Globalisierung und Industrialisierung mit ihren Zwillingsgeschwistern Outsourcing und Restrukturierung erahnen, dass die Banklehre nicht mehr in jedem Fall eine lebenslange Job-Garantie bietet.
