Discrimination Against Visa Workers at Tech’s Biggest Companies

Every year, technology giants compete over H-1B visas, and the opportunity to sponsor foreign workers. For these employees, the visa can represent a path to residency, and can mean employment at some of the world’s most high-profile companies. 
But foreign laborers who enter the program also report feeling like an underclass, with stressful working conditions and discrimination due to their visa status. The image reflects an infinite landscape of sweatshop-like cubicles with no way out.
