US cheap IT worker immigration loophole as bad the UK's

Well the US equivalent, known as the H1-B visa, is equally problematic.

The New York Times has a story about it which has serious echoes of the UK. I post the article because it is very clear in describing the problem. The similarities to the UK are frieghtening.

See this video about the UK problem.
