I am constantly writing about the problems IT professionals face as a result of businesses bringing offshore workers to the UK using the controversial Intra Company Transfer scheme to provide businesses with low cost IT staff.

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.

Also see this link for some of the articles abut the issue in this blog. Scroll down there are lots.

    Interesting article.

    “Employers are using these visas to give away our knowledge” ... and so say all of us.
