Facebook Avoiding American Workers [00:00:00] Craig Peterson: let's get into our friends here over at Facebook. I have been talking for years about this whole H1B visa problem. It's been a problem in the tech industry primarily. Now there are other types of temporary worker visas that are used in other industries.  For the most part, I think in most other industries, they're not misused. But in the US, it is very misused. It's crazy, frankly, when you get right down to it. [00:00:35] We have some of the top consulting companies in the country bringing in foreign workers.
