Wired did analysis on hot election issues where Barack Obama and John McCain say, and what have they done, about some of hot policies in US 2008 elections.
H1-B visas policy McCain is graded B+ when Obama got a C. The issue is the small number of H1-B quotas (65,000) making it difficult for US companies to hire skilled workers from outside of US.
Here is how two candidates fared on this issue –
McCain – He is in favor to expand the number of H1-B visas and he want to retain the top notch foreign skilled workers graduated in US schools.
Obama – Only a temporary increase and he is critical of highly skilled immigrants taking away American jobs. Only a stopgap measure until the industry requirements are met.
