    H-1B Cap Drives Businesses Overseas

    The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the world's largest business
    federation representing more than three million businesses,
    wrote in a letter to the members of the Congress that,
    "The inability of these companies to bring highly educated
    workers and students into the United States severely hurts their
    competitiveness in the global market and often leads to companies
    moving operations overseas."

    (a) More H-1B Visas? There May Be Good News For Professional
    Workers

    Root Law Group writes "The Skil Bill is now being pushed again in
    Congress and if approved may result in an increase in the annual
    H-1B cap from 65,000 to 115,000. Additionally, it may streamline
    Green Card Processing by establishing a pre-certification
    procedure that is designed to eliminate duplicate documentation
    of the employer that is common to multiple petitions. It also
    provides employers with an option to expedited processing of such
    visa petitions."

    6. LETTERS

    (a) Dear Weekly Editor:
    I am writing this letter in response to Dale Sutthoff's letter
    that appears in your 4/13/07 edition. Mr. Sutthoff's letter makes
    some valid points, but I'm afraid that its main thrust is not
    only incorrect in it's premise, it is based on the faulty logic
    and mathematically incorrect propaganda so commonly used by anti-
    immigration reform pundits. Specifically, the letter tries to
    make the following points, in error: First, that the current wave
    of Latin American immigrants are a net cost or burden to our tax
    base because of their consumption of social benefits. Secondly,
    that America only needs or wants highly educated science and
    industry leaders, not the "uneducated". As to the first
    fundamental misconception, one of the most disingenuous arguments
    made by the anti-immigration reformers is that unskilled laborers
    cost more in social benefits that they contribute in tax revenue.
    To understand this complex issue in a macroeconomic nutshell, one
    has to consider that laborers contribute to our tax base in two
    ways, directly and indirectly. Most economists will agree that
    even the direct tax contribution, (the actual tax dollars paid as
    a percentage of the wages of the wage earners), of unskilled
    labor outpaces the demand for social benefits paid back to the
    laborers and their families. However, some far right economists,
    (such as the Heritage Foundation), have managed to confuse this
    issue to the extent that we can call this issue undetermined.
    However, when the indirect tax contribution, (the tax revenue
    generated by companies that employ unskilled laborers, the tax
    revenue from employees of those companies other then unskilled
    laborers - ie: executives, managers, administrative staff, etc.,
    and the additional tax revenue of the companies and employees of
    firms doing business with the companies that employ unskilled
    labors generated through transactions enabled by the use of the
    aforementioned unskilled laborers), is calculated into the tax
    revenue calculations, it becomes clear that the tax revenue
    generated because of the presence of the unskilled laborers in
    question far outpaces their consumption of tax revenue. In fact,
    it's not even close. Their consumption is only a small fraction
    of their contribution. The anti-immigration reformers simply
    don't understand this fundamental issue, and in order for the
    pro-reformers to get the reform that is needed, this point needs
    to be made public. As to the other misconception that Mr.
    Suthoff's letter proffers, I would argue that while we should of
    course welcome highly skilled laborers into this country, it is
    the unskilled laborers that will provide the fuel to enable our
    economy to continue to expand. Too many chiefs, and not enough
    Indians, (pardon the politically incorrect analogy), comes to
    mind. The fact is that with unemployment at historic lows, we
    need workers at every level of our economy, not just at the top.
    Isn't that point obvious?

    (a) More H-1B Visas? There May Be Good News For Professional
    Workers

    Root Law Group writes "The Skil Bill is now being pushed again in
    Congress and if approved may result in an increase in the annual
    H-1B cap from 65,000 to 115,000. Additionally, it may streamline
    Green Card Processing by establishing a pre-certification
    procedure that is designed to eliminate duplicate documentation
    of the employer that is common to multiple petitions. It also
    provides employers with an option to expedited processing of such
    visa petitions."

    6. LETTERS

    (a) Dear Weekly Editor:
    I am writing this letter in response to Dale Sutthoff's letter
    that appears in your 4/13/07 edition. Mr. Sutthoff's letter makes
    some valid points, but I'm afraid that its main thrust is not
    only incorrect in it's premise, it is based on the faulty logic
    and mathematically incorrect propaganda so commonly used by anti-
    immigration reform pundits. Specifically, the letter tries to
    make the following points, in error: First, that the current wave
    of Latin American immigrants are a net cost or burden to our tax
    base because of their consumption of social benefits. Secondly,
    that America only needs or wants highly educated science and
    industry leaders, not the "uneducated". As to the first
    fundamental misconception, one of the most disingenuous arguments
    made by the anti-immigration reformers is that unskilled laborers
    cost more in social benefits that they contribute in tax revenue.
    To understand this complex issue in a macroeconomic nutshell, one
    has to consider that laborers contribute to our tax base in two
    ways, directly and indirectly. Most economists will agree that
    even the direct tax contribution, (the actual tax dollars paid as
    a percentage of the wages of the wage earners), of unskilled
    labor outpaces the demand for social benefits paid back to the
    laborers and their families. However, some far right economists,
    (such as the Heritage Foundation), have managed to confuse this
    issue to the extent that we can call this issue undetermined.
    However, when the indirect tax contribution, (the tax revenue
    generated by companies that employ unskilled laborers, the tax
    revenue from employees of those companies other then unskilled
    laborers - ie: executives, managers, administrative staff, etc.,
    and the additional tax revenue of the companies and employees of
    firms doing business with the companies that employ unskilled
    labors generated through transactions enabled by the use of the
    aforementioned unskilled laborers), is calculated into the tax
    revenue calculations, it becomes clear that the tax revenue
    generated because of the presence of the unskilled laborers in
    question far outpaces their consumption of tax revenue. In fact,
    it's not even close. Their consumption is only a small fraction
    of their contribution. The anti-immigration reformers simply
    don't understand this fundamental issue, and in order for the
    pro-reformers to get the reform that is needed, this point needs
    to be made public. As to the other misconception that Mr.
    Suthoff's letter proffers, I would argue that while we should of
    course welcome highly skilled laborers into this country, it is
    the unskilled laborers that will provide the fuel to enable our
    economy to continue to expand. Too many chiefs, and not enough
    Indians, (pardon the politically incorrect analogy), comes to
    mind. The fact is that with unemployment at historic lows, we
    need workers at every level of our economy, not just at the top.
    Isn't that point obvious?
