That would be a waste of perfectly good stale cheap candy canes :D

I shouldn't say they don't do anything, I guess; it slipped my mind they do cater in sub sandwiches for lunch one day. Naturally the cheaper ones. My manager, this is no kidding, is so hacked off by their thriftiness he won't eat just to prove a point. We tell him dude they don't care if you eat or not so you might as well it's a free lunch and out of this place you're doing well to get that! But he simply won't partake out of principle and he's a guy who normally would be glad to line up so it must really bother him.

It may be the way of the future, but not here in the US. Corporate America hates with a passion the idea of anyone other than executive level people earning a living wage, so that will pretty much be outsourced for the most part, and even today companies like Microsoft are bringing in as many H-1B workers as they can to try to drop wages on the jobs they don't send offshore for whatever reason.

I urge people who are considering getting into IT to think about this before you leap. It's not what it was 10 or 15 years ago. Looking back I wish I'd gone to a trade school for plumbing or a skilled trade where they can't offshore it, and it requires certifications that they can't bring in some foreigner to do the job for peanuts. And you won't wrack up 50k in debt wile you are at it. That's the smart way to do it. I don't recommend 4 year degrees for most Americans anymore because it just doesn't pay. You can go get a degree in journalism then get the same 7 dollar an hour job at Walmart you could have had without the degree.
