Default KALW-FM public radio in San Francisco and KUSP-FM Santa Cruz

Your Call 050409

Are foreign workers still an economic asset?

Are foreign workers still an asset in a struggling economy? On the next Your Call we'll talk about an increasing unease in the Bay Area about American companies hiring foreign workers or outsourcing jobs. The Bay Area has been a haven for high skilled immigrants and they have returned the welcome by founding half of Silicon Valley's new companies in the last fifteen years. Is the welcome mat about to be pulled back inside? Send us an email at feedback@yourcallradio.org or join us live at 11 am. How will our economy change if foreign students take their diplomas and go home? It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.

Guests:
Matt Richtel in San Francisco
New York Times reporter, covering technology and telecommunications from the San Francisco bureau. He currently writes the monthly column "VC Nation," about the venture capital industry.

Vivek Wadhwa at Duke University
Fellow with the Labor and Worklife Program at Harvard Law School and executive in residence/adjunct professor at the Pratt School of Engineering at Duke University.

Folks,

Wanted to share this with you. Some thoughts for talking points.

If you or some one you know has been hit by the TARP amendment, explain your position.

If you or some one you know has graduated from B School and were denied a offer, explain the protectionism this amendment brought and how this will have repercussions down the lane

If you are one of those who will buy a home if there were no insecurity/risk caused by lack of permanent residency, tell them that you will buy a house if you were given a green card.

Vivek did good job on bashing that programmer guild guy. He and other callers are on body shoppers . Vivek was arguing to give GCs . he also agreed that there are some some loop holes in h1b but not majority of . Also one of caller from NJ ( RAM ) did good job.

During talkshow.. John from PG said that there is lots of abuse in H1b program. Majority of program is currpted. He also said DHS acknowleged that there is 20 % fraud in H1b prog.

Now RAM argued that if u are saying majotiry and at same time u mention 20% is that 20 % is majority ? Why dnt u look at 80 % side... that was very good point..

also he mentioned that H1b is path to GC for most of highly skilled. They are trying to close door one by one. Divide and Rule policy..

Wonderful show.
Vivek was brilliant ! John looked clueless and lost the arguments.

I wish we had more advance notice and more of our members would have called in.
