There's one way out of this model. Become your own employer. Develop a
service or product and sell it on the open market.
If I were working for someone else doing exactly what I do now, I'd be
making a quarter of what I do now. The difference is the people I do my
work for don't have to pay for down time or benefits. It's cheaper to
use me. From my side, I'm busy all the time and I can have concurrent
jobs running and bill for all of them.
One OS to rule them all, One OS to find them,
One OS to bring them all, and in the Darkness bind them,
In the land of Redmond, where the Sales Reps lie.
