At least that’s what Lou Dobbs calls it. Apparently, companies are looking for ways to “disqualify” US workers so they can hire presumably lower-wage immigrants instead. Oh, I’m talking about skilled workers. So, let’s say that the want ad asks for three years of SharePoint, and I say that I have two years of SharePoint plus two years of ASP.NET 2.0. I’m obviously qualified, but because I don’t hit the exact requirement I’m marked as not qualified. The job can then be legally offered to an immigrant because no US workers qualify.
