most big tech firms have overseas facilities and legally hire cheap labor with nary a single visa being required. one US company recently laid off several hundred americans and is hiring several hundred indians to offset that. no offense to my indian colleagues, but the companies are usually getting what they pay for- high turnover, very slow development, communication issues, all of which will quite easily offset any perceived savings.

I've met only one good Indian developer in my whole life and for that man I got respect. Rest of them? Jesus Christ they are a laughing matter. You can save money on Indians only short-term because as soon as the product of their work need some altering then everything comes crumbling do you need to hire either real talent or do it again.
