: Does anyone out there feel too many work visas
: have been issued at US studios for foriegn
: animators?

So, you think that is just a matter of bodies. That they import people for the fun of importing them because they sure dont cost any less.

: I do and I wanted to see what other people think.

: Let me be clear though, I think work visas are
: good when there really is a need for animators
: and they cannot be found in the US.

You are using the word "animator" like you would a standard brand name. A standard of quality. As if any animator could fill any slot.
As if somehow you are being held back from filling a job by these visa workers. Or is it that you just wish to force companies to hire you ? I mean, that is what this looks like. You want a job that you were turned down and now, so that you can force them to use you, you start attacking people who are here now with visas.

Visas are a pain to get. After all the documentation they must be put before the union for approval. Submissions for that position by US animators have to be requested first so dont try and give the impression you get a visa in every box of Frosty-Os. The real question here is how good are you ?
