H1B Visa holders - No better than American workers.

The lobbyists know that crying educational doom-and-gloom sells. Even though it was mainly “Johnnie,” rather than Arvind or Qing-Ling, who originally developed the computer industry, and even though all major East Asian governments have lamented their educational systems’ stifling of creativity, the lobbyists have convinced Congress that the industry needs foreign workers from Asia in order to innovate.

The facts show otherwise. Most foreign tech workers, particularly those from Asia, are in fact not “the best and the brightest.” This is true both overall and in the key tech occupations, and most importantly, in the firms most stridently demanding that Congress admit more foreign workers. Expansion of the guest worker programs — both H-1B visas and green cards — is unwarranted.

As per this article from the Center for Immigration Studies !

Very interesting article.Some assumptions seem to be biased negatively towards foreign workers though.The reason his so called "TM" is low for foreign workers is probably because the Asians are ready to live with a modest salary unlike their American counterparts who need big fat paychecks to maintain their larger than life lifestyle.Nevertheless 1 thing to agree is the large scale misuse of the H1B Visa loophole by the body shopping companies.
