    Infosys and Wipro being called "top firms". Hehe.

    Seems perfectly in line with his sentiment of protecting US workers; have they got enough IT folk though? While there's an influx of Indians prepared to work for a pittance, are they instead of US IT bods or because there aren't any. Guess we'll find out soon.

    Well, maybe we'll get a look in at a decent rate.

    I've worked in the US before; don't know if I'd want to make it my permanent home but I'd love the opportunity to have another go.

    Do you think the likes of Google are using a lot of dirt cheap labour from India so that they could save money on top US/World talent?
