This is interesting.  Let's assume this job posting is real.
After years of displacing U.S. citizens via fraudulent use of H-1B _and_ L-1
visas, Wipro has the cajones to post, right in our face, an
offer of employment in India.  No quantity of rupees could compensate.

Now, some obvious questions arise.

What U.S. citizen are they expecting to hire?  If they don't expect to, as
anyone can subscribe to the si-list, then what non-U.S. citizen from what
country would want such a job location?  No, the U.S. - as we know - is a
declining place, so suddenly not producing enough engineers and other
professionals, it's like the bubonic plague by God, for which India and
China had to come to the rescue.  But, I don't think your typical U.S.
citizen engineer would take very well to the corruption over there and stark
class society.

So, why is Wipro having an issue filling the job with the 'superior' non-U.S.
citizen worker?

Hmmm... possibly is the targeted candidate Indian?   Might they be in the
U.S.?  Are there no direct means within India to find such a person?
Evidently not.  And evidently a shortage exists within Wipro and wherever
their tentacles reach.  Wait, I thought - as the Indian (and U.S.,
unfortunately) press trumpet - the Indian engineer is so much better and
they produce masses of them?  What's the problem finding an Indian engineer
who also knows a little physics?   Gee whiz.  So sad.

I've just heard (BBC I think) that U.S. companies are closing Indian
operations.  And, the Indian edge is decreasing due to costs.  So, don't
offer the weak crap that it's demand that's causing the Wipro posting.
Intel is going to Vietnam, instead.  Yep, the race to the bottom.  Even the
Indians might actually catch a clue sometime soon.  Americans?  No; too deep
in sleep.  I have NEVER met an H-1B/L-1 who could contribute to any SI
effort and, at Intel on one occasion, only contributed to negative
productivity.

More likely, Wipro and the like are starting to retrench and build the home
base.  Especially since the H-1B cap wasn't raised.  The rampant fraud in
India has drained off alot of the H-1B slots, leaving Wipro high and dry.
Well, waddya know, the law of supply and demand does exist.  Just not in the
usual way.  Yee ha!!

"Fraudsters walk away with H1B visas!"
http://seeker.dice.com/olc/thread.jspa?threadID=2421&tstart=0
"Glen Keiser, Consular Section Chief, US Consulate, Mumbai said, "We have
found to our regret that Hyderabad and Bangalore are centres of H1B visa
fraud and that it is not difficult to walk into an operation and someone
rather forthrightly tell you that they can produce anything to appear to
qualify for an H1B visa...".  The link at the above link has Indian tv video
describing Wipro's Woes.

The 5% of their GDP that is tech exports (incl. services) is not growing as
in the past and the nervousness doth rear its ugly head.  Plus, the only way
to exploit the L-1 visa is to have personnel employed at a "home base",
ready for transfer to the U.S. - without any protections for U.S. citizens
whatsoever (not even any H-1B fig leaf protection).

So, this is a rich thought...  Like my mom always said, "the truth will
out".  And it cometh right quick.  So I say India should legislate a US-1
visa whereby we foreigners may be imported to save the ship.  At an
appropriate premium, of course.  But, that might have to wait until AFTER
our Congress has devolved us further, maybe into 3rd World status.

Obviously, since India is apparently incapable of producing someone skilled
enough, Wipro is counting on past H-1B exploitation of Indians & Americans
having produced someone who can do this work from their U.S. experience
_and_ who now wants to work in Bangalore, ready to continue taking work from
U.S. citizens, or others, in their own country.   That takes balls.  And a
U.S. Congress bought and paid for.
