While it sounds nice on paper , the idea that folks DONT undercut, buy
cheap to sell high, and in short hire with a look to the bottom line is a
tad bit more dream induced than reality induced.

I am sure there are those place which would never do such things. I have
worked for a few who have, have heard of more who do and have talked to
people actualy in such situations.

Its market driven. If your price to hire is lower than the price set by
the markets your entering, youll be damn sure that if that fact is hinted
at your offers will flow to a greater degree.

Immigration or not, this is the way things happen on a large scale. Im not
saying it its universal, but to suggest it is not done is as abusrdist as
to say everyones doing it.

(sh)It happens.

The only good thing to do is profit by it how ever it is your profit
(money, perks, spiritual, etc)
