Hi Ryan, It was good to hear the other side of the story as well. As an immigrant from India who once held an H1B, it always makes me uncomfortable to read the articles just looking at the bright side of the visa. Plus, I have seen the abuse up close and had to deal with all the problems that came with it as a legitimate H1B visa seeker.
One minor correction you may want to consider. Out of those 85,000 visa, 20,000 are reserved for the people with higher degrees in STEM fields from the US universities. If it were not for that I would have never gotten the visa. Nonetheless, there are companies gaming that quota as well.
