LinkedIn CEO: Let US Companies Bring In More Overseas EmployeesThu, 05/31/2012 - 15:01 — admin

LinkedIn CEO Jeff Weiner and the company's chairman, Reid Hoffman, took the stage today at the D10 Conference.
Weiner weighed in on the controversy over the H1B visa, which tech companies love. It lets US companies temporarily bring in workers with special skills, like engineers.
Some labor groups say that the visas are being abused, allowing companies to bring in less expensive talent from elsewhere instead of hiring a US citizen for the same job.
