From the article. President Trump's immigration reforms are set to open a divide between Silicon Valley bosses and their technology workers – much as Brexit did. Unlike many of Trump's policies, this one will find favour with Congress and strike a... — read more
Too funny the company wants us to fill out our goals. Why we haven't had a pay increase in years. My goal for FY17 - 18 is to still have a freaken job!
