H1-B Visa Day Of Reckoning Nigh

curmudgeon99 writes "Tech bigwigs fail to convince Congress to open the floodgates on H1-B visas.

Although people like Balmer, Gates and the Googleboys tried to convince Congress to allow a lot more H1-B visas, the Democratically-controlled Congress had none of it. It appears that they are going clamp down on the abuse of the H1-B system.

Hearing the bigwigs whine about how this is worse than the status quo is a sign that the American high-tech worker just won one."
