  •  Backlash? (0+ / 0-)

    Backlash from what starting point, exactly?

    The Department of Labor Strategic Plan (formerly available on their web site, but not anymore) had very explicit language that an H1B could be hired "even if a qualified American was available and wanted the job".

    That's pretty damned shocking language for a supposedly representative government.  H1Bs should be used to provide skills for which American candidates are unavailable.

    The fact that the H1B program is heavily oversubscribed and goes to a lottery every year is also enough reason to seriously rethink it.  The terms for an H1B are hardcore indentured servitude, and there had better be a damned good reason why any are allowed.
