BNET -- Pfizer donated tens of thousands of dollars to Sens. Chris Dodd and Joe Lieberman of Connecticut, and those senators supported an expansion of the H-1B visa program that allows foreign workers to be brought to the US to do technical jobs, according to New London’s The Day. Coincidentally, Pfizer has had a policy since 2005 of using outside contractors staffed heavily with H-1B visa holders to replace their U.S. employee staff.
