Okay see some of the beef with H1b visas, but how about women who have had their degree for years and can still not catch a break because of male monopolized technological communities?

Re: Still these US Corporations hiring temps H1B visa holders
How is this related to H1b??

So, it is OK for America to harbor 11 million "illegal" immigrants, and worry about only the 65000 H1b visas instead, who by the way enter the country legally. IMHO H1b folks are highly competent and hard working people. 

Most of these H1b-related hate comments typically come from some of the incompetent Americans, who will neither innovate themselves nor will allow the country to innovate. Why don't you guys go and settle in North Dakota or may be somewhere in Alaksa...you will not have to worry about H1b visas anymore.

Re: Types of Companies
This is pathetic. When technology moves up it has direct impact on humans. However I think this will not happen overnight.

These US corporations have legaly bribed (Campaign Fund Contribution) enough US politicians and have received extended big H1B quota. So they can fire US engineers, scientists and programmers but keep or hire more H1B visa holders and exploit them. Even these fired US engineers' big brother IEEE agreed with these H1B visa arrangement because there is a shortage of US engineers and programmers!!!

Yahoo!
How is Yahoo even still in business? They had an early lead and let then-upstart Google steal their lunch.

Types of Companies
With a few exceptions, they are all infrastructure companies -- either unable or unwilling to shift as technology approaches changed
