Is the H-1B Program a Cynical Attempt to Undercut American Workers?

H1b Cynical Undercut

Source: Derek Thompson

In this article, Derek Thompson looks at the pros and cons of the H1-B Visa program. While he concedes that it does give companies an excuse to pay foreign workers less under the guise of diversity, he argues that there are many reasons to support the H1-B Visa program, while still understanding its pitfalls. Thompson lists keeping American-educated foreigners in America (rather than taking their American education abroad), keeping jobs in America, and the moral imperative of improving the lives of those who weren't born on American soil as three reasons to support the H1-B Visa program.
