H-1, PCB 0.

The quota for this year's H-1 filled up in record time. Before I got one. Awesome. As part of the immigration bill that's about to be read, debated and hopefully passed, the H-1 quota will increase by 50,000 with immediate effect. Companies like Microsoft are threatening that they will relocate entirely overseas if this doesn't happen. As the US economy is in the toilet, I would imagine that kind of pressure has a lot of sway right now. But I can't count on that, so I'm not. If it happens, great. In the meantime however, it's time for Plan B. If only I knew what the fuck Plan B was.

I'm really sorry to hear that. If it's any consolation, this country's gone off the rails anyway, so you're not missing anything.

I want PCB here, so I refuse to believe that Plan B is necessary yet. However, I understand the need to move on to plan B, so I'll let you do it while I refuse to allow reality to affect me and whatnot. The bill will pass!

Though what does that mean for you exactly? Does this push you to the forefront when the following year (and is it a fiscal year or an actual calendar year) starts?

Pass the damn bill already! I want PCB here too!
