You should see what CIBER is doing at Cabela's. Those of you who are Navy
vets are probably familiar with the term "hot bunking". CIBER brings guys
across the pond in groups of four to an apartment building they own. Each
group of four is put into a two bedroom apartment, with one bed per bedroom.
Two guys work the day shift, and two work the night shift. There are sixteen
apartments in that building.
These guys stay for a year, and then they're gone. One told me that at the
end of his tour of duty, he'd have enough money saved to buy a ten acre farm
and never have to write another line of code again.

Rob, the difference is that Paul is a U.S. citizen. A U.S. citizen who
pays taxes and contributes to the economy by (presumably) spending his
money in the U.S. Not so with India-based outsourcers. Even for the ones
they bring over here to work, a lot of their money gets sent back home.
The vast majority of H1-Bs are not to relieve worker shortages, which is
the basis of the H1-B program. They are simply used, as in the case of my
former employer, to increase profit. About four years ago, my employer
dumped 150 developers in a bloody Friday purge. It took them about a year
to replace all of them with Infosys bodies.

How about all those companies that have contracted out to people, like
Paul Nelson? Should those be boycotted also? Or does it only count if
some of their employees are not of Northern European descent?
