    Default Culling IT contractors over 40

    Here at JabberTank, a new right-wing political think-tank, we ponder today's problems and come up with practical workable solutions.

    Problem:

    Society is ageing and cannot meet the financial burden of a large retired workforce. Companies demand fresh new young IT staff to meet the ever-changing demands of today's workplace.

    Solution:
    Cull all IT contractors over 40. This would free up scores of new positions in the workplace, stimulate demand and provide fresh blood to an ailing industry. Contractors over 40 should proceed immediately to the JabberDiscovery Booths
    where they will be relieved of the burden that old age brings.
    No longer will you need to keep up with the latest C++ paradigm shift. Processing is painless and you can rest assured that your dependents will be taken care of by the Jabber Care Protection Plan.

    Report today to your local Booth for a better tomorrow, today.

    Some of us are responsible for creating the "paradigm shift", not just keeping up with it.

    This would be nice - I'd like my one to be just like that.
    How did this happen? Who's to blame? Well certainly there are those more responsible than others, and they will be held accountable, but again truth be told, if you're looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror.

    You've come right out the other side of the forest of irony and ended up in the desert of wrong.
