back to article Reg debate asks readers about their post pandemic status. Half ask, 'What status?'

This week, Register readers debated the motion The Pandemic improved the status of IT workers… forever. When we proposed the motion that The Pandemic Improved the Status of IT workers… Forever, we knew the debate was not going to be a theoretical one. Salary? Gratitude? Status? Respect?

    "management never forgives and never forgets"

    Oh yes it does. It'll completely forget all the all-nighters you've done and all the times you stayed after hours for no additional pay in order to make sure that everything would go well the next day for that very important presentation.

    That is all water under the bridge, especially when review time comes.

    But it will remember that one time you didn't manage to make the CEOs new bloody phone sychronize automatically with his company-based mail because you needed a bridge component the company didn't have.

      They never forgive you pointing out a mistake. They never forget you making them look silly.

    Clear as mud???

    What? 367 vs 362 is a clear democratic majority! Any suggestion otherwise is an affront to democracy! The people have spoken!

      Agreed. The 362 should accept they lost and get over it. In fact, they should pull together with the majority and help the motion work lest they should be blamed for any possible failure*.

      * Otherwise their will be Nays and other unspecified betrayers under every Yay's bed.

    management is looking to drive the business forward with AI, IoT and Big Data.

    This is where I usually email management a Dilbert cartoon

    Daedelus ??

    You'd think they'd at least spell my monicker right.

    In a far distant time one of my aphorisms got printed in a book by a programming guru. He got my name wrong too.
