The purpose of the H-1B program is to provide employers cheap foreign labor to replace American workers.

No other statement of purpose is consistent with what Congress has put into law.

The sleazy behavior of the Disney management and the unsuccessful legal challenges to it demonstrate that the H-1B program is not fixable because it is not broken.

The H-1B program is not being abused; the H-1B program itself is abusive and needs to be completely discarded.

    Couldn’t have said it better myself!

    Toss in the secret L-1b and OPT; your government’s goal is to NOT hire Americans.

    OPT is Optional Practical Training, – designed for companys taht want to hire new FOREIGN graduates (not Americans)

    Under OPT, companies do NOT have to pay SS and medicare. that is an immediate 15-18% savings for a company to NOT hire an American citizen.

    Under L-1b visas, there are ZERO salary rules and absolutey NO quantity limits.

    Regarding OPT:

    QUESTION – Do you pay more taxes while working on and H1B vs and OPT?

    ANSWER – When you are working on OPT you only pay your Federal and State/County/City taxes. When you start your H-1B then you get an added burden of FICA taxes – Social Security and Medicare Taxes. In this way your total taxes paid to the IRS does increase because now you have to pay FICA taxes as well.

      Employers love H-1B because it means they don’t have to pay FICA taxes. And L-1s pay NO income taxes at all. And we wonder why the govt is $22 trillion in debt and SS is bankrupt.

    Tried to tell you they will lose. Been watching this since Guy Santiglia of Sun sued for the same thing in 1999 and lost. No court will rule against foreign workers and cheap labor. Big biz owns the govt and the courts always side with them. Tried to tell Blackwell she was a bit naive. Been seeing this same outcome for 20 years. Nothing will change til we either get our own lobbyists or outlaw lobbying altogether.
