And that's just over the course of two years.
Not even close.
The most hypocritical thing a nation can do is claim to be democracy (while clearly having no effective representation in governance) and claim to be "spreading democracy and human rights" while dismantling it far and wide by attacking democracies and dismembering them.
A significant set of patents joint owned by Google/Microsoft/Apple where bought, long after they built products using and selling the tech with no payment to the patents' owners/inventors, following their abbreviated ethics, "Do unto others.", also known as Do As I Say, Not As I Do.
"It's the "engineer" and "tech lead" bit that's puzzling."
One insane company/department I worked for declared one of their two interns "tech lead", and left it in that state after hiring a bank of experienced engineers, to work for this lead. The task, WAY out of his depth.
Management manufactures business buzzwords EXPERIENCED tech professionals knew years ago. Then business spins certification factories around them. You too can be a Scrum Master! Project Manager! etc. etc. And then the truly clueless hire the latest fade certified.
"I don't know what a Data Analyst is, but I'm sure we need one!"
All to attract youth, who don't know this means they're making minor concessions to accommodate keeping people there night and day.
The article is attempting to fix one of the inherent flaws in their youth only hiring, their subservience to their learning curve. They don't have space to innovate, when they're on slow path discovering basics of collaboration, robust design, etc. And, nobody makes good decisions when overtired, particularly chronically overtired.
It needs to be SEVERELY restricted. "temporary", no more than 1 year. "prevailing wage rate" should be top of the local wage rate, being as their claiming they can't find local skill. NO GOOD REASON for long term leash but indenture.
Percentage of green cards should be independently verified ACTUAL shortage and lottery for those who have that - cut the employer indenture, they can compete on labor free market.
"Lowest unemployment " because Washington's redefined "unemployed". Quite noticeable by the time Obama was using it, and still continuing under Trump: only those 26 to 55 years old, and only those who've looked for work in the past 4 weeks.
There is no good reason ANY US tech person should be out of work, but for the UN initiative to provide "foreign aid", by giving third world western jobs, in the west, for work and remittances, and for offshoring to third world. https://www.epi.org/blog/the-un-global-compact-and-labor-migration-what-can-we-expect/
which is illegal.
by which - international - law exaclty?
That is the game, isn't it. Microsoft claiming US law doesn't apply to data they store offshore.
The only nation a multinational corporation belongs to is whichever one doesn't have a law against what they're trying to escape in the moment.
Fear? Stupidity. Tech sent their money and IP there, with the moronic expectation it was going to be "protected". West sent investment there, with some bizarre notion they'd get the upper hand on Chinese market. Stupidity. Trump more honest about, This Isn't Working, the last thing the neoliberalists are going to admit to, having gutted the West's middle class, to pave the way there.
They're trying desperately to keep "car" in play.
It all (buses/cars/trains) should've been replaced with @SkyTran. But there's a whole lot of industry money invested in vehicle usage: paving, auto maintenance, auto insurance, parking, gas, oil, etc., etc., that's blocking MOVE ON. It's a means of being on near every household's payroll: car payments, insurance, gas, etc.
"Simple fix to H1-b1 program"
Scrap current definitions of H1B and OPT.
OPT - prevailing wage - permanently barred from H1B, Green card, etc. - because it EXISTS for training _before_ _returning_ _home_.
Enforce H1B "temporary", Six month to 1 year limit, no renewals.
Unique skills? Prove it isn't available. Allocate part of annual 1 million - the EBs, to international qualified, and lottery their GCs - taking it out of employers' hands, and give them mobility from day 1.
NO GOOD REASON EMPLOYERS ARE ENTITLED TO INDENTURED.
"nobody outside America should buy ..."
Monopoly. Legislated monopoly. Called "trade agreements", they trade markets.
NAFTA, for example, Mexico traded their corn market to the US for manufacturing jobs - they unemployed 2 million Mexican farms/farmers doing so. US corn shipped there, US subsidized.
"All humans are equal, nationality is an artificial distinction brought in to recruit soldiers to fight wars."
A nation and its citizenry is an agreement to a set of rules, laws, principles - and as citizens we've paid for it - with money, with effort, with life and death.
Piping in unnecessary labor into the workforce, is gaming the rules, laws and principles, for profit.
At some point, break the rules, laws, principles, and the dynamics that made it work falls apart.
You're commenting with little knowledge on this topic.
Senator Issa said 80% of H1Bs are paid $60K or less. $60K is "special skill" and fair market wage for Silicon Valley, among others? Total BS.
Downloading the approved databases, Google, Facebook, Microsoft, etc. hire some of their staff at well below $60K. Really, HR is "special skill"?
As for the 65K quota, not really. 65K is lottery for commercial hires of Bachelors. Another 20K for Masters and PhDs. UNCAPPED: H1B hires for government, research, education and medical - and those professions are so flooded it's not even funny. Adjunct professors are now working for less than min wage and on food stamps. This isn't taking into acccount OPTs, who have NO min wage and NO cap.
There's a WHOLE lot you don't know. And that's giving you the benefit of the doubt, that you aren't spreading BS intentionally.
