Bad idea: employers are getting way too picky. They want the exact profiles while unemployed and/or older engineers have a broad enough education to adapt to new positions. Intel just lobby the government to increase supply in order to lower the pay. Why not other industries? Doctors make so much money because they limit supply with boards etc. At least the lottery does not discriminate engineers vs others.

I've commented on this before. Green cards reform makes a lot more sense than using H-1B permits, which are subject to abuse, and the end result is engineers, trained in US industries, leaving the country. Of course H-1B usually ends up as a stepping stone to a green card. Why not just reform the green card program in the first place? It seems like the hardest way to become a US citizen is to do it the legal way and have a college degree and useful skills.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
