Bill Gates has been busted in a big fat lie and we've got the statistics to prove it.
Last year, Microsoft founder Bill Gates told Washington Post columnist David Broder that the types of people they were bringing in on H-1B Visas, are:
Highly paid, highly qualified individuals. Salaries for these jobs at Microsoft start at about $100,000 a year.
Their counterparts can be hired more cheaply in China or India, he said, but Microsoft does 85 percent of its research and development work in the United States because it wants its computer scientists interacting directly with its program managers and its marketing people on its own campus.
Gates was pounding the halls of Congress at time of this interview, demanding more H-1B Visas along with the ITAA.
