Squeezed Visa

While now Senate almost pass legalize illegal immigrants by giving Z visa or such..paying 5,000 fine over 8 years, "learn English", I was wondering how about the rights for those who are highly educated people who earned masters or even PhD degree can ever pursue their American Dream without outrageous difficulty. Read an article here in Business Week. Yes, I know immigration issue deserved debate but you will know later who can long stand in this global competition. Remember,the world is flat.

Senates investigate H1B visa

Washington post said there are nine companies occupied 20,000 H1B visa quota which is a little bit too many for nine companies. Senates are looking into it.

This event might somehow impact H1B visa debate currently going on in the Senate. Job seeker should be pay attention to this kind of "consultant " or "outsourcing" company.
