The political backlash against U.S. employers hiring highly-skilled foreign workers resurfaced this week as companies applied for H-1B temporary visas. Professor Robert Kennedy, executive director of the William Davidson Institute at The University of Michigan, and author of a new book on globalization, "The Services Shift: Seizing the Ultimate Offshore Opportunity" (FT Press), says in an audio interview with Renita Jablonski that the current financial crisis heightens criticism of the H-1B program. A transcript of the interview is available at http://marketplace.publicradio.org/display/web/2009/04/01/am_h1b_drop/.
