Some Google Bids For Visas Denied

Google Inc. said it was denied nearly one-third off the 300 high-tech visas it requesting for foreign workers who were to start work this year, about the same rate as this year, about the same rate as last year. The H-1B visas are reserved for highly skilled foreign workers, and are limited to 65,000 annually, so they are doled out by lottery. The U.S. received almost three times that number of applications on April 1, the day it could start processing them for fiscal 2009.
