U.S. Has Contingency Plans for a Draft of Medical Workers.
I don't want to scare any of my readers unnecessarily, but if a skills draft does happen, the next group to get nailed will probably be software developers. It looks like the age range for the medical skills draft would be 18 - 44. My guess is that they'd go for younger programmers, but it would still probably be something like 18 - 35.
I'm turning 35 in November, not that they're likely to look for negotiators like myself. Still, if I had a skill that the government wanted, I would be looking at Canadian immigration policies if Bush is reelected.
