Not all H1B visa holders are in IT field and they should not be cheap. At least there need to meet Department of Labor salary minimum. They are set by DOL, so there should not be a cheap labor. Even someone think they are cheap, they should already meet the salary requirement.

Again, immigrants are one of the key factors America is not aging as most of the European countries.
