My point is that during a layoff, companies should not be retaining H-1B or other work visa program employees over qualified American workers. Our immigration policy is not intended to harm the American workforce. I encourage Microsoft to ensure that Americans are given priority in job retention. Microsoft has a moral obligation to protect these American workers by putting them first during these difficult economic times.

Alley Insider - Senator To Microsoft: What Was That You Said About Wanting More H-1B Workers? (MSFT)

So you think its only Americans who are suffering from this "difficult economic time"? its almost everyone in any county who were affected by this macroeconomic crisis, which started in America. What kind of "moral obligation" is that, to protect "American workers" at Microsoft, who are mostly highly educated, probably educated enough to find a new job more easily than H-1B workers, who would need to leave the country once she gets fired?

I just sort of felt that the last two sentences of this article inappropriate. well, anybody is one-sided. so am I.
