American jobs for American. Stop the H1B mass migration and deport those laid-off who don't go back. Call your Congress-member and demand that H1B visas be eliminated.
In theory the H1B visa is awesome. We had an absolutely incredible engineer, he just knocked our socks off, who lived in Europe. We tried to bring him over(at well over $100k) but all the Indian companies had sucked up the visas for the *potential* to "insource" a bunch of $35k cube rats.

Getting rid of H1B is stupid, it kills our competitiveness and ability to attract top talent. However, we *must* fix the program to keep it from being exploited like it is today.

I have no problem if true talent is brought in from overseas.....but if it truly is “talent” they should be compensated like an American would be.

The sports world seems to have no problem with compensating foreign talent equal to what an American would make.....no sport would pay, say, Steve Nash less because he was a Canadian...or Yao Ming less because he was Chinese. They are paid based on their talent....not to undercut American players

Agree- Especially if your company requires unique job skills that cannot be found. But the Indians and other Asians come over here- and then for all practical purposes it takes the form of a permanent visa and then they go through the whole sham of the “green cards proces” and before long we have unlimited chain migration. There is a veritable cottage industry of immigration lawyers and they have become a very powerful lobbying group as well
