The $100K+ you saved will not be enough to pay for the potential loss of IP / code theft. That is why our place no longer hire curry niggers a few years ago. We exclusively hire US citizens and the work morale, profit both improved.

The premium for the American work ethics is worth it.

"It would be one thing if local employees could be tied to a job, but courts has awarded money for anti-poaching schemes. "

It could be easily done through the use of employment contracts that has to be renewed every X time periods based on performance. You salary is set during the terms of the contract, and you receive a bonus for finishing the term. If you leave you lose the bonus and unpaid benefits. This is similar to how academia operates.
