Bidding for better tech employment conditions

Kelly McNeill writes "There are new and improved ways for U.S. citizens to work. Why they aren't in effect is anybody's guess, but I think it has something to do with supplier-based economies monopolizing the standards and practices of the workforce. What do we have now? If you don't do what you're told, you're fired. You can deviate from the predetermined goals of the corporation for which you work by developing better ways of doing things, but if you do so habitually, you're a goner. If you go too fast for these companies -- and they can't control everything you create -- they'll toss you."
