H-1Bs in the P-G

There has been an ongoing debate both here and in other blogs, particularly over in Cleveburgh about H1-B visas. Many people contend that there are countless foreign-born workers who are taking jobs from Americans, not because of qualifications, but because they will work for less. Sunday's Post-Gazette has a story detailing the otherside of the coin. A (apparently very gifted) young chemical engineer, a CMU grad, who wants nothing more then to live in the United States and lend his mind to an American company for the profit of American shareholders and American executives and to pay American taxes along the way has found that few are willing to risk hiring him because they are afraid they will not be able to get him a work visa.
