Re: H-1B visas [*] Silicon Valley to fill engineering departments with top intl talent
Apartments are for the H1B's in the fancy FAANGs I think? At the fairly large corp I spent most of my career (about 28K employees worldwide), they *literally* bought a hotel (ex-Comfort Suites) right in the same business park as their global HQ, with a company-owned shuttle to bus them back and forth. Multiple people per hotel room. As an immigrant, and one that started life in the US helping my parents clean these same office buildings late at night (I was 9 years old, guess who 99% of the people still working at the office at 9PM were?) while they hustled to make their 3rd or 4th job on time, I find the H1B program highly disturbing.
