Yah! Lower salaries for us all. Technologists
make only 1/2 to 1/3 of what doctors and lawyers
make, but have become indispensible to the
business community and society. The tech visa
bill is just a way to get cheaper labor so you don't
have to pay to keep the talent. It'll be a national
crisis when it exceeds other sector salaries, but
I think it's a little pre-mature to start undercutting
their own. How are you going to draw new talent to
the information and computer sciences if you keep
capping the salaries compared to legal and healthcare?
