It's a good first step, but the impact on salaries will be minimal. What we need is enforcement of current laws that require evidence no American can fill the position. As practiced that requirement is ignored.

I was gonna say, we also need to focus on super scummy vendor companies which fuck over their workers by skimming 40% or more off the top.

According to Wikipedia only about 20% of H1B and L1 applications are denied. That means Americans are pretty much directly competing with the whole third world for these jobs.

I think we should also ban those slime ball Temp-Job Agencies too, companies use them to avoid paying a working wage w/benefits.

Shitttty companies like Wal-Mart that have a point system designed knowing almost no one will make it out of the probationary period. 5 mins late a few time and catch the flu this winter? "sorry you're fired apply again in 6 months".

This allows them a revolving door of workers they never have to give raises or benefits.

Agreed. Nothing right away, but if next time someone walks out the door from getting abused and they find it hard to replace, the only thing they know how to do is up salary.

I must be old because I remember when it was like this in America. Damn I miss that place.

Yes this is my thought as well.

The thing is like the indians don't need to be present in the US.

"Offshore" is how you pay programmers dirt cheap while pocketing all the money.
