br00tus writes "A day after Bill Gates's testimony before congress on Wednesday on this subject, a bill was introduced to double the number of H1-B visas for the United States. The Washington Post quotes former IEEE-USA commitee head Ron Hira saying "No matter how one dresses up this bill, it would do nothing to curb the practice of companies bringing in computer programmers for $12 per hour to displace U.S. workers", a sentiment shared by university studies of the H1-B visa."
