BACK IN THE DAY AN IT HERO WAS BORN
He Got Even.
It was June 2002 and Mike Emmons was living in Longwood Florida, working as a contractor for Siemens Information Communication Networks. Siemens management had informed their American employees that they would be laid off. But, first they said we want you to train your replacements. Once trained you will be given a severance. About 20 days later in came a slew of Indian workers; TATA Inc. Indian employees. Along with the Siemens employees, contractors were ordered to train their replacements but were not offered any severance. Siemens management just assumed the contractors would just go along with the program.
Sound familiar? It is paradoxical how things remain the same over a period of 15 years. People change, tastes change, priorities change, but IT workers are still training their replacements on the way out the door to the unemployment line.
