Interview questions presented

1.) In the first-half of 2008, Microsoft founder Bill Gates said, before a U.S. Congressional panel, "…many US firms, including Microsoft, have been forced to locate staff in countries that welcome skilled foreign workers to do work that could otherwise have been done in the United States, if it were not for our counterproductive immigration policies." Mr. Gates stated limits on H-1B visas aimed at highly skilled professionals are too low for the rapidly growing U.S. technology sector. What thoughts do you have on reviewing current immigration policy regarding H-1B visas aimed at highly skilled professionals?

2.) Please describe one (1) outcome you could see happening to the talent pool for manufacturing in the United States if 'tougher' U.S. immigration enforcement was in place?

3.) U.S. Chamber of Commerce president and CEO, Tom Donohue, in a previous VentureOutsource.com interview, said, "Critics of outsourcing often overlook the benefits, such as the creation of jobs by foreign firms that open operations in the United States. No other society in the world has benefited more from the migration of money, people, and jobs than the United States. The fact of the matter is we insource at least $50 billion more in service work than we outsource. The jobs we gain in the U.S. far outnumber the amount of jobs we outsource." What are some of your thoughts regarding Mr. Donohue's comments?
