16. Total BS. We don't need a single H-1B worker.

When my 59-year-old laid off software engineer husband was looking for work 3 years ago, he was basically laughed at at job fairs for positions he was well-qualified for. Cheap companies only wanted young, inexperienced H-1B types who would work for next to nothing. He ended up having to settle for a 40% pay cut anyway doing work he was overqualified for but that required US citizenship. The citizenship requirement was the only thing that saved him. He wrote to Senators Boxer and Feinstein at the time and received two form letters thanking him for writing. Our elected reps. are useless on this issue.
