On Sunday, I was astonished to see that the Seattle Times actually ran a story on H-1B visas and their effects on American tech workers. By 8 a.m. Monday, PDT, 211 comments were posted. Commenters were lucid and ticked off about immigrant visas and they are really ticked off at Microsoft.

Here is the story: Do visas for skilled foreigners shut out U.S. tech workers? By Kyung M. Song and Janet I. Tu, Seattle Times, May 4, 2013 (253 Comments)

On Monday, the Times had a story about the spouses of Hl-B visa workers who cannot work. Comments are overwhelmingly not supportive. "So, go home." [ H-1B visas good for skilled foreign workers, not so good for the accompanying spouses, by Lynne K. Varner, May 5, 2013]

I plan to call my senators and ask staff to read the articles and comments.
