My company works on legacy databases and literally cannot find new people to learn the languages we need. Yet another way Boomers are taking away from young people.

I'm not following your logic there. How is it boomers are taking jobs away from young people if they can't find people except boomers with the skills? It's not the boomers fault that young people don't have the skills. That's like saying that it's peanut butters fault you can't have a sandwich when there's no bread.

Because you work on outdated systems that should be obsolete

If you can't find anyone to work on the databases, I'm assuming that they'll change them over eventually.

I'm not following the logic here either. How are Boomers taking jobs from others if new tech is much more in demand than legacy tech?

I quit my job on Tuesday this week. Two days later, my fiancé who worked in the same department as me got terminated unexpectedly and with no prior warning or any prior communications about performance worries or anything else. The only logical reason we can come up with for his termination is retaliation for me quitting. I think he has grounds to file for wrongful termination, but we live in an at will state. Anybody with employment law knowledge and any insights here?

How much does Microsoft pay their entry level designers? The pay must be worth it right since designers go there to die. The bar to entry seems to be extremely low as Microsoft hasn’t produced anything remotely attractive visual / experience wise in the last decades. A company with over 100,000 designers but nobody has any eye for visual design or what LOOKS good… there’s a reason they’re not respected in tech and nobody’s first choice.
