    1) If you got funding in the US, you got capital that would have otherwise gone to an American. (If you brought your own capital, there are already fast & legal pathways for you to come here legally).

    2) If you are not getting good job applicants, then The Free Market is trying to tell you something: You are paying too little. Try increasing salaries by 30% and the resumes will roll in!

      in 50 countries around the world. How's that taking money from Americans?

      We started it with sweat equity.

      Every person I hired is an American. They are all partners in the company.

      As for #2.  Yeah, I take your point. If I really, really wanted people, I could pay them enough to get them. We're already paying into six figures, though, in small-town America.  It's more an issue with location than salary.

      Believe me, though, the shortage is real. We need a lot more American kids (like mine one day) going into tech careers.
