    •  The money from my new job (1+ / 0-)

      I've spent the last 21 years working in IT and the last 20 years and 364 days of that time trying to keep a step ahead of the obsolescence curve.

      The skills I had to break into this field wouldn't qualify me for a minimum wage job now. ... hell the skills I used to get promoted only a few years ago wouldn't get me an interview now.

      I'm not saying its easy, but I'm not lining up (literally) to use some out-moded system of transactional commerce when there are infinitely better/cheaper/faster options available to me just because I don't want to see job displacement.

        what about all the other people who won't get a job in IT since there aren't enough IT jobs for all of them.

        And what did you plan on doing when your IT job gets sent to India where someone will do the same work for one-third of your pay.

        In the end, reality always wins.
