Of course, I feel it is a mixture of the above. But, I'm starting to get the impression agencies are a barrier to new skills development. It seems that their exists a two tier system: highly experienced developers (they may be good or bad!) who are in demand, and unexperienced developers who cannot get any experience.
.....other forms of work that require less effort and skill for alot more money.

Which other forms of work would that be? I could use a few ideas.
And, between obviously ludicrous expections stacked high and boolean-anded together, the first fatal mistake they usually make is filtering out the talented-but-honest from those willing to lie to get the job. Which works, albeit inefficiently, since many, though not all of those willing to lie can pick up these new skills just as well as their forsaken counterparts.
