Is UC into "Techquity"?

"The cap on these visas is always insufficient, and the shortage of workers often stymies productivity at our high-tech companies," Democratic Gov.

Brown urged Feinstein to support an expansion of H-1B visas while also calling for more education funding to help with "filling our work force needs domestically."
