You made any empty accusation, to which I humbly disagreed. Of course I see not only legitimate, but good purpose in the H-1B program, but what I strongly object to is corporate giants using it, and other methods to surpress wages. As I said in my first response, it's economics 101 that in a free market, where demand exceeds supply, the price will rise until demand is met. This isn't happening, because of the manipulation of the market, with the H-1B program and other methods. I would add, another indication of market manipulation, is productivity has risen as indicated by the following, "Software engineers today are about 200-400% more productive than software engineers were 10 years ago," while salaries remain flat. The share of the wealth created, by the work of the engineer, has decreased proportionately -- that is 200 to 400 perrcent. If there was competition in the marketplace, there would be high levels of movement of engineers, from company to company, but there is not. There is corporate abuse of the H-1B program, in at least three respects, artificially increasing supply, paying lower wages, and overworking the H-1B engineer. When companies stop manipulating the market, letting salaries rise, then revisit the question of increasing the H-1B quota. I've never advocated eliminating it, or even reducing it, just eliminating the manipulation of it by corporations, to keep salaries low.
