At some point I'll write a longer essay about the myth regarding the shortage of technical workers in America. Right now I just want to point out a ridiculous article that attempts to build sympathy for Sanjay, a foreign worker who, by his own choice, lives in Canada because his wife is not allowed to work in the U.S.
What made me laugh a bit was that near the end of the article (of course, because most people won't read that far) we learn that not only are Sanjay and his wife inconvenienced by our supposedly draconian immigration laws, but so are his wife's unborn child and both his parents, who also live with them.
The article would like us to agree that, yes--they should all be allowed into America and be given work visas. Sanjay is that good. He's like Tim Geithner.
