Indian workers in US on temporary visa exploited

The US temporary work visa programme is rife with abuse and heartache, according to a New America Media report.

Professional high-tech workers with degrees from such prestigious schools as the Indian Institute of Technology come to the United States on the so-called H-1B visa only to find they have to forego all that they have paid into Social Security when their visas expire after six years and the green cards they have applied for is still years away.
