Business WANT more foreign H-1B workers to drive down salaries.

That's all this has ever been about. I've seen how this works first hand, what these Indian IT workers are willing to work for to get a visa, it's peanuts. And companies like Capital One have hired tons of them and in the process, they consistently lowered their max bill rates for new contractors.

So basically they lower salaries/bill rates to the point where Americans won't/can't take the job, then they claim "We can't find any Americans to take the job!"

Same thing happens with cheap manual labor and legal/illegal Hispanics. The narrative is always, "Americans don't want these jobs so we have to hire illegals!" but the reality is, Americans just don't want to work for slave wages.
