    are the only job fields where wages haven't been suppressed to Walmart levels. They're some of the few remaining middle class wage jobs left in the US economy, one of the few opportunities for college grads to make a living and pay off their student loans, barely.

    If the WH and Dem leadership really care about fair immigration laws, they'll strip these provisions out of the bill.  The fact they haven't means they're owned by their corporate donors.

      The H-1B visa is practically speaking an invention of the Democratic Party.

      Gene Sperling, who is the Director of the National Economic Council in the Obama administration (ain't that a hoot), was the primary H-1B power broker in the Clinton administration.

      I'd be very surprised if Sperling is not involved in the current negotiations.

        for personal profit.  

        When IT and STEM workers are earning near Walmart wages, what's the point in acquiring all that debt going to college?
