An H1B writer is a foreign writer who comes to the US with an H1B Visa, I
think. Tech people, highly skilled workers, and supermodels fall under this
category. The company has to prove to the US government that a suitable
candidate cannot realistically be found in the US in order to import an H1B
candidate. Companies love it because they have the employee by the balls;
if the employee quits or does a bad enough job to get fired, he/she has to
find another company willing to sponsor him REALLY quick, or go back to his
country of origin.
About 3 years ago, I met a very skilled Chinese fellow in the Bay Area who
could code in C++ well enough to make, in my (limited) estimation, 80K or
so, at least; the company we were employed at paid him 28K. Barely livable
in the Bay Area at the time. He couldn't leave, though, because he was more
willing to have a small room with a television and no bed than to go back to
China. I admired his fortitude, but wished him a wretched life (he was
skilled, not nice).
