Superb H-1B essay from Carrie's Nation
Print Friendly and PDF
Carrie’s Nation, a blog I didn’t know, has published an excellent, extensive, and very thorough discussion of the Outsourcing/H-1B scandal: Ross School of Outsourcing Wednesday March 11 2009.

This keys off an op-ed by a scalawag Professor at the University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business, Robert Kennedy, who is apparently making a career out of cheer-leading for worker-importing and job-exporting. (Email Professor Kennedy).

Carrie’s Nation makes quite heavy use of work at various venues by John Miano (it was by a link to one of his VDARE items I was alerted to this essay). There are also some valuable quotes from Indians executives gloating about the advantage exploiting the H-1B loophole gives them:

Tata Consultancy Services Vice President Vice President Phiroz Vandrevala states in regards to H-1B and L-1 visa holders

"Typically, for a TCS employee with five years experience, the annual cost to the company is $60,000-70,000, while a local American employee might cost $80,000-100,000." " "This (labour arbitrage) is a fact of doing work onsite. It's a fact that Indian IT companies have an advantage here and there's nothing wrong in that. The issue is that of getting workers in the US on wages far lower than the local wage rate." "

( emphasis. The link above is priceless.)

The author of Carrie’s Nation describes herself as

a housewife living in a northwestern suburb of Detroit. I consider myself to be part of an almost extinct breed called a moderate Republican.

Judging by the quality of this article, her house must be immaculate. And, based on her understanding of this issue, she is going to have a hard time staying a ”moderate Republican”.

Applaud Carrie's Nation
