"[Employers] don't seem to like older employees or the long term unemployed. The H1-B program just adds insult to injury. It would be nice to know how many electrical engineers lost their jobs in the last year and how many H1-Bs and L-1s (jobs) went to electrical engineers during the same period," he said. "We electrical engineers are kind of the canary in the coal mind. What's happening to us now, may happen to other STEM fields when the number of visas are increased."
