one of these days, I may have to eat my words, but I feel that as long as the long-time MTs keep up with technology and the ever-changing industry and are willing to make the changes needed to remain valued members of a company, I think they will have a job. Yes, high-caliber newbies can be employed for less, but they don't have the experience to go along with their education. They generally are not as quick as a more seasoned MT to pick up on discrepancies in a report. They have to look up terms more often, thereby slowing down their productivity. They have to build their Expander programs as they go along where us old MTs usually have an outstanding expander program. All of these things will impact a newbie's productivity.
As long as us old war horses just sit around and gripe and complain about all the changes we have to make, we will become obsolete and easily replaced by newer MTs who are eager to make their mark on the industry. I think it is all about how valuable we make ourselves, old or new.
