"Conroy [Director of Bright Future Jobs] says corporations are using an alphabet soup of visas that, in essence, enable them to discriminate against American workers.

Conroy showed us several job posting websites in India with dozens of ads -- some from U.S.-based companies -- recruiting people with one of these visas to come to the United States to work. Much of what she showed us was perfectly legal."
