U.S. government created the H-1B visa program in 1990 so, that U.S.companies could hire foreigners with special skills. Approximately 85,000 H-1B visas are distributed annually. Majority of them go to technology companies, which claim that U.S has a shortage of skilled technology workers. Critics, however say that H-1B visa program has been hijacked by Indian staffing companies, which use these H-1B visas to import foreigners, especially from India. These Indians are willing to work for lesser wages than Americans. Numerous U.S companies have laid off their tech employees and replaced them with Indian H-1B visa holders.
