H1B Visa is well supported by the GOP-e as they think this is a way of getting $$$ donations from high tech companies.
It is supposed to allow a way of finding quality advance degree scientists to help high tech.
Many Phd process engineers were hired H1B for Intel.
In reality since 2000, it has been a back door to allowing companies to drop high priced workers and hire cheap overseas workers.
Many HP Sr workers have spent years training H1B’s only to discover they were training their replacements.
HP gets lower costs and the stock goes up.
Management gets big Option bonus and worker bees get the boot.
That's the depressing truth. I've been in Info Tech for 30+ years and what a change! Americans are a minority in most places. They're been replaced by armies of low-skilled / inexperienced Indian H1B's with and half-dozen fast-talking, inexperienced, totally biased H1B Indian hiring managers.
