By all means America, shut the door on foreign workers

I say that, because I might be a little bit biased:

Most large technology companies point to hundreds of job listings that they can't fill because of the lack of qualified U.S. candidates, they say. In the long run, if they can't hire enough skilled workers here, development and engineering offices are more likely to open elsewhere: H-1B concerns already prompted Microsoft to open a new programming center in Vancouver.

a recent study concluded that insufficient quantities of visas are actually sending would-be U.S. job openings overseas (or north, to Canada).
