    I respectfully disagree.  Our policy is to keep the better employee.  We regularly release US citizens and keep our best H1-B folks.  We are in the business of providing the best possible service to our customers, not subsidizing lesser employees.  IMO, we should be encouraging the best foreign workers to stay here.

    •  in this case..... (none)
      If it was a choice between the "better" employee and a "lesser" US citizen employee, ok.  But, when a few dozen of the same job are let go, and the few remaining include a foreigner, I do not find that justifiable. Is he really the best employee in the whole department?  Well, from neighborly actions, it wouldn't appear he has good service oriented talents.  I'm just talking about this one case, which I think is a grossly unfair case. (And also, I'm tired of him bitching about living here.)

      Overall, I would agree with you up to a point. But I wouldn't import foreign workers when there is an adequate supply of highly skilled workers existing and not being used.
