White House taxes Silicon Valley to skill-up American workers

Absolutely. A corporation doing a H1-B should basically be required to fast-track the imported worker as an American citizen, instant acceptance, with full voting rights and the right to switch jobs after 2 weeks notice, the same as the rest of us.

They are not, however, 25 years old, with exactly two years experience in the latest technology and willing to relocate to Silicon Valley and work for whatever corporate America wants to pay them. H1-B visas should require forcing an equal number of executive vice-presidents to relocate to the appropriate third-world nation and take a pay cut to whatever is common there.
