Editor's Comment: I've seen the announcements for these job fairs, but I never seen any feedback as to results or the success of the efforts. It seems to me that the companies in Panama have gone beyond scraping the bottom of the barrel. They are already actively committing acts of economic cannibalism, stealing good employees from one company to another with promises of better pay, benefits, and working conditions. I wonder how long the Panamanian economy can continue to grow with insufficient workforce.
