H1-B visas – McCain ranks better than Obama on policies

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.
