OUTCOME: Pending

IT Layoffs AND more H1B Visas

Status: [OPEN] comments (0) | add a comment | confidence poll
IT layoffs are going to happen, putting tens of thousands of technical people on the streets, yet STILL the big employers will be pushing for unlimited H1B visas to bring in technical people from South Asia. This mean-spirited and blatant age discrimination might be successful, too, unless the Obama administration does the right thing.
