(H-1b) Alternative to Bill Gates' Suggested Increase
 
Posted 12 years ago on 3/31/2008
Summary: Programmers Guild Proposes Alternative to the H-1b Lottery

KB100976

From - http://www.prweb.com/releases/2008/3/prweb781154.htm

The Programmers Guild agrees with Bill Gates that the H-1b lottery does not serve U.S. national interests. The guild advocates that priority be given to higher skilled H-1b candidates, and that U.S. employers be given preference over foreign consulting firms. These simple changes would provide a means for Microsoft and other U.S. employers to have every H-1b that they submit on April 1, 2008 approved.

. . .

Before Congress considers increasing the H-1b cap based upon the testimony of Bill Gates, U.S. tech workers should be granted equal time. "U.S. Citizens should have an equal voice in Congress as multi-national corporations," states Kim Berry, president of the Programmers Guild. "There are many highly skilled American tech workers being overlooked because they do not have the precise skill experience cited in job ads - and because Microsoft and others only considers new graduates for entry-level positions."

If any Congressman is unaware of the harm that H-1b is causing, Berry recommends that they review the "H-1b Harm Report" at www.HireAmericansFirst.org, where hundreds of U.S. tech workers have detailed their personal experiences.
