    I mean you gotta eat. I dont work for meta but for an industry that is probably scum. I think what I do adds value to it being less evil. I also do the bare minimum and they pay me so I think thats a win-win.

      How easily could you get a job elsewhere though? Meta devs have a choice and they chose greed. These aren’t people struggling to pay bills dude. I’m getting sick of people acting like they are.

      And note that I did say “willingly”. I understand there are people at Meta, especially non-devs, who may not have a choice. I doubt they are anywhere near a majority though.

      Software engineers can find high paying jobs easily, they can choose. Unless they want to eat caviar at every meal.

          Which kind of software engineers have trouble finding high paying jobs relatively to where they live?

                I guess I’m missing where you made your initial point of “this applies to any profession”. Could you please restate your point?

                  I’m talking about the condition of software engineers, and being disabled/burnt out applies to any profession, so it’s not a valid argument to counter my point that software engineers can get high paying jobs and can choose where they want to work.

          You’re trying to tell me that Meta devs can’t find a job anywhere else? Give me a break. It’s hilarious how this thread touched such a nerve.

        Did he say anything about software engineers? It’s not as if thats the only job available at corporations.

          It’s the majority of the payroll at this kind of company, and I wanted to mention them in particular. Do you disagree with my statement applied to software engineers?
