(Kalsi said he’s on an H-1B visa and has a 60-day “countdown” to find a new role or leave the US.)
Tell that to Americans who suffered under the Cheap Labor Express.
Welcome to the party, pal.
Welcome to the real world.

He’ll probably be replaced by an even cheaper H1B.
Did he stare in disbelief when 1000s were laid off at CSX, NorfolkSouthern, GM, Ford, and every other company that has closed plants and downsized?
Doubt it. He’s just another liberal, hipster tech nerd who laughed when all those blue collar folks, that keep the country running, lost their jobs, since his job writing code is much more important.
What is the resident status of his wife?
Yep. No sympathy here.
Mike Lee has been a champion of the H1B-visa folks, trying to import as many as he can for the tech companies that have showed up in Utah.
Learn to code...oh, nevermind.
“He’ll probably be replaced by an even cheaper H1B.”
You get a gold star.
FREE AT LAST! FREE AT LAST!..........................
Probably a blessing. In ten years, Google will be a faint memory as the new, proprietary ChatBoxes take over and make all search engines obsolete.
And in 5 years, he’ll be replaced by an even cheaper H1B........................
Go home to where you came from.
I wonder how many of these “imports” sympathized with the people who had to train them knowing that they were training their replacements.
Email caste. Generally speaking, if they don’t show up for work, no one notices.
Unlike someone important like the janitor whose absence everyone notices immediately.
