Perspectives on the H1B Visa

A controversial government program allows high skilled foreign workers to temporarily work in the United States, frequently in the fields of engineering and IT. This program is the H1B program; it allows American companies the opportunity to hire the best and brightest workers and foreigners the opportunity to experience life in the United States. These workers frequently face challenges including mistreatment by employers, poor wages, and limitations in visiting their homelands. Jodan Baudsen and Greg Gaumondd report. Produced in spring 2013 in conjunction with Professor Casey Love‘€™s Politics of Immigration course and the Center for Public Service. 7:51.
