This seems like another case to stop H1B visa system. We are sacrificing quality over Q4 earnings by outsourcing skilled jobs to unskilled cheap body shops.

That has more to do with outsourcing and haphazard disintegration of product requirements than H1B's.

"Eschew flamebait. Don't introduce flamewar topics unless you have something genuinely new to say. Avoid unrelated controversies and generic tangents."
