Why are some people so upset about the H1B visas?
"The spirit and intent of H1-B is to get foreign help only when the company cannot get help it needs (at the price it wants or can afford) from the local job market." This is simple socialist bs. If some Indian dude wants to pull 80 hour weeks or work for minimal pay to write my software, all power to him. If a US citizen wants that job, he can either put in more hours, work for less, crack open some graduate level CS books, or come up with a new, brilliant algorigthm. Nothing wrong with pushing someone to work harder or get smarter. Competition's negative effects may be focused on a few but its positive effects are comparitively massive (albeit spread out among the whole population)

Go back to school and take some classes in economics and history. Henry Ford knew he had to pay his workers a living wage if he was going to sell cars. An 80 hour week may put out cheap software but who will buy it?
