Trump is FINALLY doing something about the H1B issue (Main Board)

If there wasn't an unlimited supply of H1bs available, employers would be forced to consider older Americans.

Yep. And you know who else they would have to consider? African Americans. Steve Bannon made the following statement on a recent podcast - "If George Floyd had a well paying manufacturing job, he would have never been in the situation he was in." A similar statement could apply to other blacks who are underemployed. There's so much talk about reforming the police, reparations, more affirmative action, and all that. How about increasing economic opportunity for blacks and promoting personal responsibility?

An H1b candidate is more attractive than the experienced American worker, even when the H1b is getting paid a little more and not as skilled. That's because the H1b has indentured servant status and can't switch jobs easily.

Unfortunately, this is true. Sounds like slave labor to me.

It is a problem. If you're a talented student, going into software can be an idiot move with outsourcing and H1bs. Over time, this means there isn't a pool of qualified American workers. For a lot of interviews, I go there and everyone is Indian.

Many young people are making good money....but there's an expiration date.

Here is an example. I go on an interview and they don't make me an offer. I look them up on the Internet, and they hired 10 H1bs last year (in a 100 person company). If the H1bs weren't available, they probably would have made me an offer.
