Test from Professor Matloff:

Quickly! What are the two MOST IMPORTANT reasons the
tech industry loves the H-1B program so much?

If you answered "cheap labor," you only receive partial credit. Yes,
it's true in general, but the BIG savings accrue from using H-1B to
avoid hiring older (35+) Americans.

If you did not also answer "immobile labor, tied to the employer," then
sorry, you don't get a passing grade. (I know you've been working hard in
this class, but you've been missing the major points.)

Today's post, though, will concentrate on the age issue, prompted by the
article in Fortune, "Tech Industry Job Ads: Older Workers Need
Not Apply," by Verne Kopytoff. June 19:

All those years spent endorsing this practice, and they're just now figuring
it out?
