How Legal Immigration Failed Silicon Valley | TechCrunch
Our immigration system hinders entrepreneurship, innovation and productivity. Success in the tech industry, where whole new job categories are created overnight, requires deep familiarity with trends, products and technologies. Learning opportunities abound — if you’re willing to transition to new roles, educate yourself, work on different products or switch companies altogether. Building your own startup, or even joining one, can be the best career move; it offers remarkable potential for growth by wearing multiple hats in an expanding organization. The labor market benefits from this flexibility not just with an improved and adaptable workforce, but also one that creates jobs. The immigration process impedes all these possibilities. [...] [ reset process when switching companies ] [...] And that’s not even the worst part. If you get laid off, you must leave the country. Immediately. [...] Try telling your VC you spent $25,000 of their $1 million funding on immigration fees

Immigration is about talent, not costs | AeroFS
via https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=8687804 << comments. &! Interns get paid in Silicon Valley related to STEM! if qualified and "talented" and "fits." http://www.vox.com/xpress/2014/11/24/7275635/tech-intern-salary &! So interns cost ~6-8k/m @ SF/Palo Alto/Silicon Valley bc of cost of living!? ... in parts. But also bc of war for talent. Very different to Berlin Start-Up Scene (cost of living, talent & skills, competition for it & just starting out - developing ecosystem to support "Start-up Scene").
