Along with Patrick Thibodeau at Computerworld, Michael Hiltzik of the L.A. Times has been covering the ongoing workplace genocide of American techies at Disney, SoCal Edison, and other places.  So far, the talk of raising the H-1B cap has resulted in nothing, and the myth of the India's "best and the brightest" saving American companies from IT apocalypse continues to be exposed.

"Perrero's story is becoming woefully familiar -- in fact, several congressional committees have been hearing testimony like it for more than a year. It's the story of how a visa program designed to allow high-tech companies to find foreign workers with advanced degrees and unique skills has been subverted by industries using it to replace American journeyman technology workers with lower-paid workers imported from overseas. 

A year ago, the wholesale firing of IT teams at Disney, Southern California Edison, and other tech-dependent companies and their replacement by offshore workers with so-called H-1B visas caused a national scandal. We exposed this loophole at the time, and followed up by showing how Congress connived in the visa subterfuge."

THERE WILL BE RETRIBUTION
