Whose University Is it Anyway? By: Gene Nelson, PH.D.

"My bachelor's was from a top-notch science and engineering school in California, Harvey Mudd College. I worked hard to earn a Ph.D. in biophysics at SUNYAB between 1973 and 1984. I was unable to pursue a career in radiation biophysics. Now aged 56, I have had to face the prospect of homelessness more than once because employers prefer "fresh (inexpensive) young blood" - now mostly via the controversial 1990 H-1B visa program. The H-1B Visa gave to many employers the same advantage (special handling) that colleges and universities such as SUNYAB obtained via the obscure 1976 "Eilberg Amendment."
