We all knew that the hyped stories from the glossy magazine and investor reports during the boom didn't tell the story about what it was really like to work in our industry. Today, job security, health care, retirement plans, visas and offshore outsourcing are on our minds more than ever. We need to join together and build a movement that is going to stand for our concerns. WashTech is that organization.
