We are hearing news stories that our H1B visa program is broken.
Evidently many companies are having trouble finding employees with the skills that they need and are trying to hire workers from foreign countries.
When companies want to hire foreign workers with special skills to come work in the United States, the workers frequently need work visas.
The H1B program is one way to obtain the visas.
While there is talk about the high cost and general scarcity of the H1B visas we are not hearing about why the visas are necessary in the first place.
Why is it that these companies cannot find U.S. citizens to fill these jobs?
Are our young people not willing to learn the skills that the companies are looking for?
Are our universities not teaching what the companies need?
Is it that the companies can pay less money for the foreign employees that they bring over here?
Maybe our readers can help us to understand this issue better.
We deserve better
