"Apple also points out that drawing comparisons to other tax arrangements in the EU with other multi-national companies is improper, as the facts and laws differ from agreement to agreement. As such, Apple argues that their use in a legal battle about taxes is inappropriate and unfairly prejudicial to Apple."

That's the point of doing business with the EU Apple, uniformity. If you don't like it then maybe you should have backed Britain in their Brexit vote and not spread FUD.

You accounting shenanigans are coming home to roost. Pay your taxes hippie.

You do realize that the majority pf H1B Visas holders are not foreign students educated in the United States. The majority are from India.

Give it up Potsy. The H1B Visa program is being abused. The majority of H1B Visas go to off-shoring firms like Tata and InfoSys. They do not go to business trying to find hard to find skills. The H1B Visa program is meant to supplement NOT replace US workers.

"It was also a period where the recruitment of so-called H-1B labor was at or close to the cap"

This would show you the affect of H1B Visas on the labor market. And *YOU* assume these jobs would be moved over seas. Off-shoring did not pick up traction until the 2000s.

FYI Potsy if the company doesn't fill the job position then there isn't a need to increase the H1B Visa cap.
