I spoke with a few software developers. From
what I understood they have acquired their skills
on their own. One of the explanations for the
job changes (outside Mauritius) is that "it leads
to greater job fulfillment". Another explanation
is that "workers today know they could be laid off at any time".

I read the message posted by Logan (
). Won't the Ministry of Technology,
Communication and Innovation see the
following: "This view is shared by Jochen
Kirstätter, the founder of the Mauritius Software
Craftsmanship Community (MSCC)"? The Ministry
could read that as meaning that the Mauritius
Software Craftsmanship Community is in favour of
"eliminating barriers and attracting foreign workers".

Mr Kirstätter commented that "Mauritians want to
earn a lot of money in a short time" and that
they are "not loyal to the firm that employs"
them. Would either of you say something like that in a press interview?

There is the following from Mr Kirstätter:
"Before setting up their own companies, the head
of IOS advises youngsters to integrate a firm and
learn the various tricks of the trade". What
will young persons learn when there is "auto-formation"?
