Will the new bill make much of a difference for job-hungry Americans? Critics in the States don't think so. According to the IDG News Services, "Ron Hira, an associate professor of public policy at the Rochester Institute of Technology, said the fee is a step in the right direction but doesn't go far enough to deter the 'exploitive practices' of the visa program."
Respondents to the GupShup poll don't appear to think so either. "We are taking their jobs, there's no two ways about it. We're better, faster and more efficient; this backlash from them was bound to happen," said a user by the name of Bharati, an engineer who spent the first two years of her career in the United States. "Their new policies make no difference to us anymore, it's a global market now -- there's plenty of work out there."
A user named Pradyut, a business development executive in a KPO firm, shared a similar sentiment: "American firms will find new ways to outsource work from India and South Asia because similar services there would cost them a bomb. Their anger might be justified but they really can't do much about it. They really can't stay competitive without us."
