Are there any AVAILABLE jobs willing to sponsor an H1-B? My boyfriend needs one!!!!
So Indian, or other foreign brains, are better than American brains.
It's got nothing at all to do with employing indentured servants at lower pay, right. Right?
But, hey, it's O.K. These guys are just temporary, right?
So what percentage go back after their contract? I'm sorry, I can't hear the answer. It's so quiet in here.
We ought to just keep the Indians and deport the politicians.

"I said, 'Hi. I'm an American citizen. I'm looking for a job,'" Shah recalled. "They said, 'No, that job's been set aside for an H-1B employee.'" The staffers at the legislative briefing were stunned. "There were audible gasps," Shah said.
How could anyone be surprised? This has been reported over and again.
What happens much of the time is that a foreign graduating student is hired to do a job. He is a satisfactory employee, and the employer wants to hire him permanently so he does the advertising necessary to do that. It's not the way the system is supposed to work, but you can see why the employer wants to avoid the hassle and cost of interviewing an unknown from outside when he already has the right fit.

So maybe 30,000 of those come from H-1B.
Is that 30K aggregate or 30K new H-1Bs per year, with previous year's H-1Bs now under a different category?

The libs who run American industry are a bunch of Euro-fascists.
"There are an estimated 10 million people in the domestic IT work force," said Jeff Lande, senior vice president of the Information Technology Association of America. "So maybe 30,000 of those come from H-1B.
LIE LIE LIE LIE LIE.
What were the H1-B quotas in the earlier part of this decade? 250,000 per year?
Does this a**wipe think he can pull this lie off and we don't notice? I was one of the hundreds of thousands of IT workers looking for a job in 2002 as the H1-B program still brought in a quarter-million new workers. They can kiss my arse running before I agree to raising it back up without the old games they used to play about pretending to give American workers a chance while structuring the job requirements so that they excluded American IT workers.
