Re: Be afraid: The government announces that it will "bring in" stuff!
Be very afraid...
Step one: Government starts charging tech firms for extra h1bs.
Step two: Money used to train new it professionals, so they can get those 50% above median wages.
Step three: Between increased supply of extra h1bs and new trainees, IT salaries start falling
Step four: Having found revenue source that companies are happy to pay to get cheap labor, government expands charges to tech firms.
Step five: Money from new revenue source starts going to pet programs that have nothing to do with training.
Step six: Winners end up being government bureaucracies, tech employers and h1bs. Losers are American IT workers.
