IEEE-USA disappointed with Senate bill increasing H-1B visas

Buried in the bill: more high tech jobs lost to indentured servants imported for the purpose of lowering wages. Between news like this and NAIS it's enough to make me paranoid. And just because I'm paranoid it doesn't meant that they aren't out to get me!

IEEE-USA is disappointed that the comprehensive immigration reform bill passed by the U.S. Senate on Thursday expands the annual H-1B visa cap from 65,000 to 115,000, adds an automatic cap escalator and includes a new exemption for foreign nationals with high-tech graduate degrees without strengthening safeguards for foreign and domestic technology workers.
