This is a very childish, trollish way to ask a serious philosophical question about how human society should be organized. "better", really? That's a simplistic, meaningless qualification. Let me guess, you are twelve years old and read some Ayn Rand. 5, insightful?
Another classic example of this is the story about the man who drowned in a pool of water whose average depth was 1 inch.
The whole H1B idea has been perverted by greedy companies looking for cheap and obedient labor so much that it should be cancelled. There is already O-1 visa for "Individuals with Extraordinary Ability or Achievement" that is intended for geniuses that can be hard to find in the U.S. Any other needs can and should be filled within the country.
Look ma, another snowflake! You think you are oh-so-special and can't be replaced? That's probably because your manager hasn't bothered yet. Wait until a bad quarter or management change, than you'll be training an indian in a heartbeat. Your attitude is utterly disgusting. Hopefully, life teaches you a lesson.
You can easily buy a local variety of frozen pizza with Euros in the European Union, with Yuan in China, with Yen in Japan. With bitcoins, you can buy the pizza only in Bitcoinland, and at a very few fringe businesses.
Of course, these laws are rarely if ever enforced, just like many other labor laws, such as age discrimination. Companies politely urinate on these laws and keep on going exploiting desperate young people for corporate gains. There have been many reports about this, for example:
Laws mean nothing without enforcement. Corporations are bribing government not to enforce the laws. Until we put a stop on the abuse, corporations will keep exploiting workers like sheep.
offtopic shameless repuglican TROLL.
In any kind of serious software development, deadlines are weeks and months, not minutes. Crucial difference. You can have a bad day, and catch up or even get ahead the next. Can't be done in 10 minutes. If you are ever asked to do a programming task in 10 minutes in real world situation, the process is horribly broken and you should run from there.

You are a free market nutjob. Capitalism is what destroyed the U.S. industrial might and prosperity of 40s-60s. Especially the extreme unregulated capitalism as practiced since saint reagan. You still keep blaming the government when now-international (started in the U.S.) corporations openly loot American economy by offshoring wealth and jobs.
In case you truly don't know and are not trolling, the U.S. Senate has filibuster procedure [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Filibuster]. It allows a minority to hold any legislation hostage. It requires super-majority of 60 votes to break filibuster [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Supermajority#Three-fifths_majority]. Filibuster used to be an exception, but republicans made it mainstream in the last two decades blocking many Democratic legislations.
So yes, "Republicans have stalled the Cybersecurity Act of 2012 (using or threatening to use filibuster) with a Senate vote of 51-47 against the legislation".
This is republican troll. The global American policies, lobbied by corporations, allowed for offshoring, and companies jumped on cheap foreign labor. It had nothing to do with unions. Actually, we still need unions to protect American jobs. Unions provide a semi-balance of power which is otherwise shifted toward employers.
Clear contempt of court. Fine them so it really hurts. Say an annual Apple's revenue or so. Lesson will be learned and not just by them.
It's going to end up being a steaming pile of crap, designed by a committee, rushed to finish. Why such a hurry? In my experience, great textbooks are labor of love of experts in the field with talent in writing.
