It's funny you mention the locals not able to do a "no-brainer" job. You are a idiot my friend. One who relies on slang definitions due to a limited vocabulary in order to bring forth adjectives to describe how you feel. There are many people with excellent work ethic and more than capable brains to do most any job. If you want to point fingers point to the college educated human resources rep that couldn't indentify talent to save his life. Or the college educated plant manager that couldn't tie his shoe much less find capable people to run a manufacturing facility. Anyone can do physical labor. Some do it better than others. No amount of education can make a retard a leader. If you want to identify fault then think before you speak. If you want to compare resumes with someone local or education backgrounds with locals compare yours with mine. You will not like what you find as you will be lacking. Your IQ will be less(and this is documented on my side), engineering experience less, degrees less, and knowlege base in most any engineering field less. Think before you speak while making generalities and maybe you will not sound like a idiot.
