Susan went to the trouble of explaining what the article said. Can you give us a little more than a shoulder shrug?

The H1-B program is not used primarily by large US corporations to hire specialized workers. In fact, the top 10 recipients of H1-B visas last year were consulting firms based outside the US (but with offices in the US), who then contracted the workers to the large U.S. companies. . In one of the comments, someone who worked with an H1-B visa recipient was told that the recipient made $20k per year. Some portion of the difference between that 20k and a usual programmer's salary was not benefitting the US company where the programmer worked, it was going to an offshore company. For more info, I suggest reading the article.
