GM has been trying to replace engineering talent with overseas counterparts since the 70's. Every time we did this, the counterpart would bail for a nickel as they learned something new.
So, you mean to tell me in this current worker shortage, they're going to dictate anything to anyone, when they can't even find talent? Ever read their ads? They went from Bach and Masters down to just experience, just to fill positions.
Put in your exemptions, but don't give them any room to negotiate. These aren't open to debate or objection. I'm willing to walk from six figures with zero question, like so many. Most people are sitting on a pile of 401k money that will last them many years, to decades. Have no fear. These shots will have exposed themselves well before then.
If you think these shortages are bad now, you haven't seen anything yet. The system is setting up for many people to John Galt it, and to bring this house of cards down. If you can't see this, then well, brace for impact.
Believe, don't, I care not. Your finances will feel it. You can lie to me, but that's something you can't lie to. I've done my part to offer a warning. Don't be on the wrong side of history. DYODD.
