Agreed. I've seen this at the two companies I've worked for. They want to hire the software engineers with the latest & greatest skills and use them up and then in 5 years get the new batch. Out with the old, and in with the new. Corporate training, what is that?

Agreed. This is trickle down economics applied to labor. Using their logic we could solve the lack of science/math teachers by bringing in more science/math teachers which would then make more Americans want to be science/math teachers. This makes perfect sense.

New law: If, in your district, there is a net gain in H1-B visa hires over net gain in non-H1-B visas hires. Then you cannot run for re-election. Problem solved. This would give the incentive to representatives to make sure Americans are being hired/retrained as needed. The status quo system we have now -- crony capitalism -- is geared toward looking after business and not the voter.
