How can Chicago become a technology hub to, perhaps one day, compete with the likes of Silicon Valley? A coalition of businesses in Chicago thinks one step could be hiring thousands of foreign workers, all of them H-1B visa holders laid off in recent weeks by companies like Microsoft and Google. The group will need to move quickly. When an H-1B visa holder is let go from an American company, they have 60 days to find work or leave the country.
Reset talks with two leaders from the organization leading the Chicago H-1B Connect Coalition.
GUESTS: Brad Henderson, CEO of P33
Nuwan Samaraweera, COO of P33
