How H-1B Visas Are Screwing Tech Workers”: Mother Jones

You know when a lib rag like MJ exposes the H-1B scam, it’s really bad.

The tired, old “Yahoo, eBay, Intel, and Google, immigrants”…. nonsense.

Intel was founded by 2 Americans from Fairchild Semi – Gordon Moore and Robert Noyce – not by immigrants. Yahoo and Google both had one American founder also. Yahoo’s and Google’s 2 foreign founders moved to the US ages 6, and 8, respectively, and are more American than foreign.

All the “foreign founder’s” hype is NASSCOM PR by India which wants our companies and industries.

The whole thing is a pack of lies. Silicon Valley was built mostly by Americans.

“But in reality, most of today’s H-1B workers don’t stick around to become the next Albert Einstein or Sergey Brin. ComputerWorld revealed last week that the top 10 users of H-1B visas last year were all offshore outsourcing firms such as Tata and Infosys. Together these firms hired nearly half of all H-1B workers, and less than 3 percent of them applied to become permanent residents. “The H-1B worker learns the job and then rotates back to the home country and takes the work with him,explains Ron Hira, an immigration expert who teaches at the Rochester Institute of Technology. None other than India’s former commerce secretary once dubbed the H-1B the “outsourcing visa.”

Oh, he must mean like Mastech Digital looters. “Global Delivery” is Indian codeword for “we’re going to get into your companies, loot them, and steal them”. So is “business process transformation”.

“A 2007 study by the Urban Institute concluded that America was producing plenty of students with majors in science, technology, engineering, and math (the “STEM” professions)—many more than necessary to fill entry-level jobs“.

Yep, just look at all those immigrants who built Apple.
