      Zevon: How do we know if the best person is getting the job when studies have showed foreigners are being hired at a higher rate then Bermudians even though they are qualified. They try to deceive the masses and have come up with “over qualified” “under qualified” and “no experience” which is basically economic warfare/terrorism.
