Engineers are treated like disposable resources. It is extremely dehumanizing and demeaning.

More than that, it is unsustainable and the industry (if it continues to do this sort of thing) will find itself WITHOUT any engineers because nobody in their right mind will be willing to enter into that field anymore, there’s no future in it.

In the last 10 years there has been a 90% decline in EE enrollment in universities. If there is no feed stock, there will be no working stock. Short sighted economics are cutting off the very branch on which the are sitting, and they don’t even see it.
