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.

Yup, I've noticed for example, that someone with 6 - 10 years of experience used to be called a senior developer. Now they are considered entry level or junior. That's with 6 - 10 YEARS of experience. Also the 6 figure salaries in the market are wayning fast. Most of those jobs are super senior level, or manager. And they require a Masters or PHD of some sort. The tech market is pretty much complete shit at this point thanks to the H1b system. And tech companies have the balls to complain they need more slave labor

We should be allowing the very best and brightest from other countries to come to the US, and refusing all others. Somalis? Wetbacks? We'll pass. Top 1% of your countrymen? Sure, we'll give you a shot. Don't try anything funny.

Fuck that. let them stay in their own lands and fix their own problems. I want Americans to be trained properly so Americans can have American jobs.
