fter a slow start, U.S. employers are again gobbling up the controversial H-1B work visas. With a surge in demand over the last two months, the total number of H-1B visa petitions granted so far in 2009 is 58,900. The government caps the visas at 65,000 per year. http://www.eweek.com/c/a/IT-Management/H1B-Visa-Demand-Rebounding-143626/ So there is employment but not for its own Citizens in the USA. Go figure.
