Delete the H1-B Visa Program

Congress to shutdown the H1-B Visa program. The very economic reason is that there is oversupply of technology workers here in America and there is no method of controlling the flow. Since there is no equivalent of the AMA in the medical industry maintaining the supply and demand of Doctors (and keeping Doctor salaries and fees high), the American government needs to handle the repsonsibility. Also notable is that Technology Managers tend to be more management than technically capable. Even though they may have come from a technical background, the rapid evolution of the industry puts them out of date in a matter of months and therefore likely to make poor decisions to replace domestic with foreign labor based primarily on the price tag--- while, in reality, neither has more or less capability than the other.

    Comments: H1B is just slavery of 21st century. Allow anyone to work in US as long as he is not a criminal. Allow anyone to immigrate withing set limits. Any other program based on other criteria is violation of human right.

    10 years ago Comments: Couple of Indians come here through recuiting agency. The agnecy allows Indians H1-B workers to come to USA at their own cost and find jobs(like h1 transfers) on their own. This is fraudulant and should be stopped.I reckon there are plenty of such Indian agencies in New Jersey area doing the same. Please ensure stricter H1-B visa norms to prevent such fraudulant practices.
