Save your job, deport H1 B's now

Discussion in 'Perl' started by Daniel Heneghan, GT Solutions, Jan 21, 2004.

  1. There never was a computer progrmming shortage. Industry and ethnic lobbyist
    convinced congress to admit over 1 million H1B's over the past 8 years. Now
    you can't find a job. Well get off your a** and do something. Since there is
    certainly no shortage of programmers now, with Americans begging for jobs,
    there is no need for H1Bs. Call your congressmand and DEMAND that they
    address this issue and rescind all H1B visas.

    That's an interesting thought!

    I guess, you do not realize that you don't have to be PHYSICALLY present in
    the US to compete for a programming job with US programmers.

    So, you proposition should read:
    1. Deport all foreigners
    2. Shut down Internet
    3. Disconnect all phone channels to the outside world.
    4. Close borders.

    That looks awfully familiar to me!

    Well Dan ...

    1. Big assumption there, that if you call your congress man and demand
    they address this issue, that they will. Wrong.

    Politicians understand cash. If you get organized and give them lots
    of money, they _might_ do something to help you.

    2. It is important to realize that the H1Bs are here. Once they are here
    , for the most part, they don't benefit from offshore anymore than American
    workers do.

    3. Some Indians are more pleasant to work with than their American
    counter parts. I'm speaking in the context of being caucasian.

    4. Off shore projects are a bigger issue than importing H1Bs.

    5. Keep in mind that the Indians pay for a powerful lobbying presence
    in Washington. It is not always lower prices for business that get
    them to admit H1Bs. It is the lobby money.

    6. It does no good to get worked up about the issue. It might do good
    if you organize with others in a useful way.

    7. Last point, the Indian programmers are big on Sun and BEA certifications.
    Not college degrees. Indian universities offer much more relavent
    instruction than american universities do, and students start programming
    in 6th grade. You would figure that the government and the universities
    would do something to make technical education more relevant. But neither
    entity is responsible for the success of US college graduates. You
    are on your own.
