That's sarcasm, folks. I've longed complained that H-1B visas were primarily a tool for corporations to import foreign workers in an effort to suppress tech job wages locally. It's simply cheaper for a company to import workers here than to build a factory overseas and, if they can get Congress to do their bidding, then all the better. Mind you, I don't have a problem with foreign workers. On the contrary, I wish that labor standards were better world wide and that workers - citizens of the world that elect the governments - were allowed the same fluidity that corporations currently have.

This article in InfoWorld, titled, "The H-1B Swindle" is hardly surprising to me.
