Ditto, Nuraini.

There's no "shortage of skilled workers" in the US. That's a lie that corporations perpetuate for one reason: they don't want to pay an American a living American wage (salary) commensurate with the type of work they are demanding. In other words, they would rather contract someone in another country to come for a limited time, so they can work them hard and pay them less than what they'd have to pay an American to do the same job so that an American could pay their bills and enjoy a decent standard of living in the USA. That's what it's about, that's what it's always all about - MONEY and PROFIT and NOT people.

Its the same as the lie that illegal immigrants are only here to do the jobs that Americans wont do. Its all about the money and these huge corporations are the ones that are leading us in chaos between these so called must have because they aren't here and the huge factory farms that say that there are no americans that will do the job. I'm all for capitalism but enough is enough with all the lies.
