Laid off Microsoft workers - Big news and hope...

H-1B workers outnumber unemployed techies

See Computerworld 5/26/2009 for details

As unemployment among tech workers increases with the recession, the U.S. government is raising broad questions as part of a federal case over H1Bs about the connection of visa fraud to the unemployment of IT workers.

The U.S. is "prepared to demonstrate to the court the manner in which the defendant's schemes, along with similar schemes by similar companies have substantially deprived U.S. citizens of employment."

(…only here because this stuff has proven to be as explosive as a slight against thin-skinned Apple fans)
