Hey. I'm in the IT industry. I've seen jobs go over sees and eat up salaries dry up over here. Did I like it? Hell no, but it was what it was. I dug harder for what I could get and waited until things came back around. If it bothered me that much I coulda bailed and found something else to do. Did I have a pitty party and whine like a little girl? No.
If these guys don't like it let'em find something to do with their brand new college degrees (if they don't have them yet, let them put those meager little bonuses to use by finishing them). So they got five or ten grand instead of fifty or 100 grand - well, boo-frickin'-hoo. At least they are getting paid to start a job before they've even hit a lick. They still were picked in the first ten rounds of the MLB draft. Let'em work hard and parlay that into millions (a chance that few in this country will have), but don't go creating a telethon for them.
Like I've already said. Life sucks - get a helmet! Words to live by.
