One thing I've still never fully understood is that the same people who are against the H1B visa program are often the crowd that hates offshoring. However, by limiting the number of smart, educated, technology skilled foreign workers we allow into the US, it just means more of them stay back home where they're more able to work for either US companies -- or, local companies that will compete with US companies. Having the most qualified individuals working for US companies in the US should be a goal. Yet, once again, as we see the H1B visas get snapped up in record time people are complaining about the program. Of course, people often respond by pointing out how companies abuse the H1B program. If that's the case, then the abusers should be punished -- but it doesn't mean the entire program is a problem. We should be doing anything possible to have smart, talented workers come to the US and work here, as that helps the economy.
