[vox-tech] Losing to the H1B



Hi all,

Posted to vox-tech because the demographic audience would be more interested
there than on vox.


Found this site which has a lot of H1B info:

   http://www.h1b.info

They have a searchable database:

   http://www.h1b.info/lca_search.php

that lets you search all the H1B visas that have been filed.  I did a search
for a city in my local area and found a company named "eBusiness Applications
Solutions, Inc".  They have 623 H1B workers:

http://www.h1b.info/lca_job_list.php?name=EBUSINESS+APPLICATION+SOLUTIONS+INC&company=%2A&city=princeton+junction&state=NJ&year=2003&PHPSESSID=f68637aee5c7360efa0ec50cc31036c8

The top H1B job appears to be for a Market Research Analyst, which is paid
70,000 a year.  The rest of the job, all 622 of them, appear to be programmer
positions that are paid around $22 / hour.

There's no reason to hire overseas programmers when we have out of work
programmers right here in the USA who would GLADLY work for $22 / hour.  An
unemployed person would be overjoyed to get that job.  

The top-10 companies using H1B workers:

http://www.h1b.info/lca_reports.php

Microsoft is a big H1B company.  But they REALLY pay their H1B people well.
Take a look at the Microsoft H1B jobs:

http://www.h1b.info/lca_job_list.php?name=MICROSOFT+CORP&employer=microsoft&year=2003

I like this one:

   Application Platform Solution Sales Specialist

Carla Weitkamp is being paid $100,000.  I would gladly do her job for half
that amount.

Want a great job?  Renounce your USA citizenship.  Move to another country,
apply for an H1B visa for Microsoft...   ;)

Pete
