There is a desperate need to issue H1B visas to foreign economists:
that way American economists will quit recommending that we increase the number of H1B visas for everyone else!

4. And to require also that a certain quota of CEOs and execs get hired through H-1B visas...
... before others are hired also... If it was a burden equally shared at all salary levels of companies, perhaps then they'd see how much of a cost it is for them to "sell out" our jobs. I'm sure that one CEO that got "outsourced" would have a quick deal lined up to work for another company he's on the board of, but it would still be something that investors would start seeing what kind of games they are playing just to be able to get rid of our jobs and paying workers a decent wage.

5. And why not immigration attorneys while we're at it?
I mean, why pay a premium to have an American attorney teach you how to disqualify American workers when you can get someone from another country to do it much cheaper? :sarcasm:
