The H-1B visa is the most abused visa America issues. Less than 5% stay here
after learning our technology. Most return home and teach others in their
country. After a company trains enough people, the jobs are moved overseas.
India calls the H-1B the "outsourcing visa" I have several
friends that chose the STEM fields, that are out of work. They could of went
into other fields, but once they hit their late 40's, and were making good
money, they were replaced by younger workers, some here on visas. The H-1B visa
will kill the STEM field for college graduates knowing their career will end 15
years early. The 85,000 is a little misleading. The visa is good for
3 years, with a 3 year extension. We are looking at almost half a million
workers being displaced.
Wow!With billions spent on education, standardized testing,
assessments, accountability, and free lunches,- why are we looking to other
countries for highly skilled workers?Lets quit blaming teachers, and
find the real answers. Who should really be held accountable?
"high-skilled visas"High-skilled visas are unconstitutional.
See the 14th Amendment where all are to be given equal protection under the
law. This means that the federal government cannot engage in discriminatory
action by offering advantages to a select group and denying it to others. This
would include citizens and visitors to this country alike.
