That explains why we are not getting jobs these days even though we do in interview 95% correctly. They dont hire you because you didn't answer one question correct. They say that particular skill is required.
I think a person should be hired if the do the interview 95% correctly.
The hiring managers prefer L-1 guys as they can pay very less money to those guys .
Now its not the fault of hiring managers. It is the fault of the L-1 Visa.
When you have 2 cars . You would buy the cheapest car that serves your purpose. if the rate it almost 60% less than the other car. Which car would you buy???

Corporate america is abusing americans with the Visa system. There should be some proper regulations that the law makers should enforce as soon as possible.

I think all the L-1's should be cut back immediately and all the companies need to submit a report to the legislation about how many H-1B's they are employing. Even the Consulting firms. The Consulting firms are the major culprits. H-1B Visa need to be ceased if the candidate is no longer employed with the company.

In 99 when the industry was complaining about their non-existant shortage of workers the government stepped right in. An action that brings to mind the spirit of a planned economy.
In 02, 03 or 04 when labor is in crisis, will there be government action?

yep, that was a non-existent crisis for corporates. It was a "crisis" on how to reap potentially larger profits by using cheaper labor. The government's stepping-in has the spirit of a planned economy alright... a "corporate planned economy"
But if labor is in crisis, hardly can anyone expect something from the government.... well there's so-called welfare ...
