Make those states not fucking suck and people will want to live there and start companies there.
Yeah, that's the goal
Other places should be allowed to import more educated people. By changing the rules for H-1Bs.
How about not chasing out the educated people? Perhaps by changing something else? Like provincial shitheel attitudes?
Californians love to vote for more taxes. California consistently supports high tax candidates and policies that lead to California paying more. So you can't really be for more influence for California and not also be for more taxes.
That's funny, because California is one of the states that gets reamed hardest on taxes by the feds. It's the flyover, red states that are spending our money with their regressive policies. If they didn't chase everyone who wasn't a stupid asshole out of the state, then perhaps they'd have a chance to succeed at something other than sucking.
But the central question is: why should the rest of the US support an H-1B program where almost all the benefits go to only a few places?
Well, I'm generally opposed to there being high numbers of H1Bs to begin with, so perhaps I'm the wrong person to ask. For some reason I have this wacky idea that we should be encouraging employers to train people who live in this country, rather than people who live in other countries. Most of those people are lying like rugs to get the jobs to begin with, and learning how to actually do the job while on the job. They don't have any of the job experience they claim, they're coming here to work for a reason and that reason is there not being work for them at home.
But with that said, raising the cost of H1Bs so that they all go to California and Seattle and a few other technology centers is a good thing for workers in the midwest, or wherever, because they won't have to compete with foreigners for jobs. It might be a bad thing for employers, but if they can't succeed by hiring a citizen, I don't particularly care if they succeed. In fact, I'd rather they failed, and let someone with a better idea take their place.
