Its quite unfair for DBAs to blame their job loss/fear of job loss to DBAs in India or some other countries with cheaper labor. And to say that "you get what you pay for" or insinuating that cheaper labor means less definitely out of line... some people are just better than others...that's has nothing to do with geography or nationality...
some of the best DBAs...or IT professionals in general...are in fact indians...
Point is its not the indians' fault jobs just come knocking at their doors...
we all want better jobs and better pay...if it comes to me i'll grab it no doubt... would I think about other DBAs who were taken off to accomodate me? of course not. I have nothing to do with their decision to outsource...and even if I stress myself worrying about it...can I do anything about it?, what do I do...I'd take advantage of course...
I've come to believe no one is indispensable...even if you've served 5, 10, 15 years in a company...there's always a reason to take you out no matter how good you are...
And sometimes companies I really need someone that good and costs a lot more? or can we do with someone quite average but can get the job done and costs a lot less?
