Career Watch: A Debunker of H-1B ClaimsNorm Matloff,
A longtime critic of the H-1B visa program, the University of California, Davis, computer science professor talks about immigration issues.
Computerworld recently took a look at H-1B visa usage and determined that offshore outsourcers are the largest users. What do you make of that finding?
Frankly, this is a red herring. Computerworld's data confirms that most H-1Bs are not employed by the offshoring firms, and in any case, offshoring is an irrelevant issue. An American worker doesn't care whether a job has been shipped overseas or filled by an H-1B here -- either way, that job is not available to this American worker! It's a phony issue.
