Bill Gates on the H1-B (skilled worker visa) cap - Let 'em all in

Gates, testifying before the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, said he'd prefer that "unlimited" numbers of highly skilled foreign workers be allowed into the U.S., although he acknowledged that might not be politically feasible. Right now, the controversial H-1B program, which tech vendors and other companies use to hire foreign workers, has an annual cap of 65,000 people a year...

[...]

Senator Judd Gregg (news, bio, voting record), a New Hampshire Republican, said he agreed that Congress needed to raise the H-1B cap. He asked if an annual cap of 300,000 would be appropriate.

"It'd be a fantastic improvement," Gate said. "My basic view is we should welcome as many of these people as we can get."

I've posted numerous articles about how poorly and incompetently our government has been running these existing guest worker programs (H1-B included). They are rife with fraud and are a detriment to American workers. Of course guys like Bill Gates are in favor of unlimited cheap foreign labor. It makes him wealthier than he already is. I would hope our elected representatives are looking out for the interests of the American people...but sadly we cannot buy the influence that guys like Bill have at their disposal.


"Credibility in immigration policy can be summed up in one sentence: Those who should get in, get in; those who should be kept out, are kept out; and those who should not be here will be required to leave."

"...for the system to be credible, people actually have to be deported at the end of the process."

US Congresswoman Barbara Jordan (D-TX)

Testimony to the House Immigration Subcommittee, February 24, 1995

Another fact to ponder is (I suspect) that peejay has never looked at the regulations governing H1-b's. One of these is LCA where the pay-rates are set--so H1-b's CANNOT legally be paid at "sweatshop" (cheap labour) rates.
