Regarding Stan Caldwell, David Fisher' post indicating the H-1b issue is of no concern to structural engineers.........................
That may be true to SE's for right now, but as one who has followed the issue for over ten years with AEA (www.aea.org) I don't think this issue is going away.
Members of the IT industry and EE's seem unconcerned for the H-1B issue years back. It was boom times in their profession! Now the boom has bust!!!
There is record unemployment amongst IT and EE workers
IEEE-USA reports that umemployment amongst EE's is at historic highs!!!
Will we see the same for the structural engineering profession?
I don't know. Time will tell.
But the give you some of you an indication of the H-1B issue that so many of you refuse to be concerned I offer the following:
INTERNET websites protesting the H-1b visa, offshoring programs are sprouting.
Chat rooms, discussion groups have formed attempting to fight the H-1b,
Angry engineers, IT workers are now beginning to speak out!!
You might want to call it revenge of the techies!!!
The following is just a sampling of some of the protest - discussion groups
on the unemployment, H-1b issue, offshoring .
More seem to be forming each month as word spreads of the scam - sham that
is the H-1b visa program. New concerns over the outsourcing issue are being
H-1B, offshoring link websites:
check there database the H-1b applications
http://www.h1b.info/lca.php maybe your firm is listed????
Don't forget to review their LCA database to see if your firm is listed!!!

and there are others!!!!!!
Engineering - IT organization websites:
And there is now even protest songs!!!
Unemployed workers are even making there own videos!!!
Search Engine for H-1B stories!!!

Commentary on H-1B
This is not then end, but just the beginning.

The above does not necessary represent the thoughts, opinions of the many
engineering organization I belong, but cited only as a reference the degree
of involvement in the engineering profession. In fact most engineering
societies do not have a position on the H-1B issue with the possible
exception of ASCE, IEEE.
