The USA very likely meddled in the 2012 elections and Russia was just returning the favor. Putin said Mrs. Clinton had sent “a signal” to “some actors in our country” after Sunday’s parliamentary elections, which were condemned as fraudulent by both international and Russian observers.
Part of the problem, I think, is average quality of employees and the union (although not for the reason most union haters would think). Because not everyone who comes through mid level IT positions is necessarily a star performer, managers classify their unionized positions so that whoever they get has a chance of fulfilling the job requirements.
