When will the H-1B visa be featured on "The Real Hustle" exposing it as the scam it is? Here's how it works. Hire shills to write about a non-existent tech shortage and recruit tech CEO's to complain about access to a non-existent foreign genius pool. Also, create fake "think tanks" with fabricated "studies" on how access to cheap, foreign labor supposedly creates jobs out of thin air for American tech workers. When American Tech workers complain about it, simply hire more shills to scream even louder about how we need more foreign tech workers. If members of Congress start questioning any of this, throw some lobbying money their way to shut them up.
With this scam set up the way it is, everyone wins except American tech workers. The tech CEO's get access to cheap, foreign labor. The shills have a job based on selling out their fellow Americans and members of Congress get lobbying money to look the other way. The H-1B recipients get to come to America and learn how to do jobs they are supposedly "experts" at to begin with and then take those jobs back to the third world when the time comes.

Careful, P. Henry, you may get shut down by the pro-immigrant, legal, illegal or otherwise, Mountain View Voice editors.
On the other hand, thanks for exposing this scam.

P. Henry, I'm not sure what you're basing your information on. Even in this recession, my husband's tech company often finds it difficult to find highly qualified workers, resulting in positions in his company being open for many months, hurting the company. If his company weren't able to hire foreign workers (and many of the company's best engineers and other professionals are foreign-born) I don't know how the company would function.
