  •  Why is easy to explain (8+ / 0-)

    The most hated employee is one who is a high performer and can move to another job on whim.  It means that they cannot be treated as a slave.  They cannot be degraded, embarrassed, underpaid.  Certainly not for long.  H-1 visa holders are essentially indentured servants.  They are treated poorly, and are exploited, and are the preferred workers.  I saw this my entire career.  While it was true decades ago, STEM employees are no longer in shortage, but the advantages of H-1 people are too great for financial and control purposes.

      it's never about skills and qualifications and education, etc., etc., etc., it's only about money. And as long as we make money this important, we're going to get the dickens kicked out of us.

      None are so hopelessly enslaved as those who falsely believe they are free. -Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
