With the downturn in the economy and so many people out of work, do we really still need the H-1B program? If the H-1B program is really intended to fill in the gaps, do we still have gaps?

I was watching an interview with Bill Gates this weekend on CNN and he essentially made the argument that bringing in H-1B developers is a way of importing talent. He made a good argument for that and made me think. I still think there should be a better way than the current H-1B program though.

Did anyone else see the CNN Bill Gates interview?

1. Will Sep 29 'Black Monday' stem the call for more H-1b programmers? On Sep 29 stocks overall dropped by 10%. Some, like Apple, dropped by close to 20%. ComputerWorld asked how the current financial crisis might sway Congress on the H-1b issue.
