Work Visa Anyone???

Initially I was'nt sure whether to laugh or cry over this artice but considering the state of our nation, and our planet for that matter I decided to laugh...hysterically.

"A new bill proposes more visas be allocated to fashion models."

-The Economist

Yes, that's right! Fashion Models and IT workers are in a "catfight" over a very specific H-1B Visa which are set aside specifically for temporary workers with specialised occupations. There are only 65,000 of these visas awarded anually and they are snatched up within days of becoming avilable capping the number of foreign models able to strut down American runways.

I know, at this point you are feeling the tragedy of the situation but wait!

(Enter Anthony Weiner, New York Congressman)

Mr. Weiner also understands this tragic "glitch" and thankfully wants to help. He has proposed a bill that will reclassify models into their very own immigration category! Keep in mind that he is working so hard to amend the rules attached to these visas NOT because he is a bachelor known to date many of these models but rather for the good of New York's economy. As we all know New York is heavily involved in the fashion industry and keeping the models out hurts the eceonomy.

And ya'll thought that the energy crisis was something to worry about...pshhhht...
