I don't normally post in this area. Infact I tend to avoid it like the plague. Tell me how you all feel about this. I have pretty mixed opinions.

i think it would be a good thing, as long as they can speak the language clearly and I don't have to change my life to accomodate theirs. They are visiting/guests whatever you want to call it. New cultures bring new ideas.

How about him taking some of his billions and using it to train workers here rather than just trying to import lower cost workers from overseas?

Of course he supports it! He gets cheap, legal labor that way!

This about sums it up:
"Gates, who runs a foundation with his wife that is the world's largest charity, said flexibility of movement for higher-skilled workers was especially important for his global company.

"I think every country in the world should make it easier for people with high skills to come in," he said.

In a recent address to a U.S. Senate committee, Gates said scientists and engineers from India and China working at his giant software firm routinely waited more than five years to get a U.S. green card."

Take a look at how hard it is for a native-born U.S. kid to get a job today.

There's an engineering and IT group at Ford who do their daily work and documentation in Indic (a langugage of India) because "they're more productive".

How many kids named (really named, not nicknamed) Steve, Bob, Brenda, or Sue do you see getting hired into IT jobs today? I see damn few. I do see a lotta Krishnas and Sanjays. They're smart folks, but there seems to be a distinct element of racism going on here. Ever notice that an Asian peoject leader will tend to have all Asian team members - and they will discriminate against other Asians (i.e. Indians won't work with Pakistanis, regional Indian differences, etc...).

When you're laid off for a lower-cost overseas / recent immigrant replacement and your kid can't get a job because "there's a shortage" (where?) and we need to hire all of India and Pakistan, remember Mr. Gates' words.
