I love doing therapeutic massage for people in pain.

That's interesting. I have a friend who's a really successful jazz bassist and makes a really good living doing session work. He went to study massage (shiatsu, etc) for the same reason. He says it has given him a renewed sense of purpose and has made his hands stronger and more dexterous, which is good for his bass playing. I was initially puzzled when he told me he was going to massage school, but now I get it.

I thought the whole point of H1-Bs was to fill jobs that they couldn't find qualified applicants for?

That's just what they told everybody to get it in the door.

It's really about enriching companies by allowing them to undermine the labor market.

This is all about maximizing shareholder value, and fuck the people who actually live in your country ... unless they're willing to compete for wages with people from India that is.

Welcome to the race to the bottom. The only winners are the corporations.
