That is the core of most of this Indian outsourcing companies, they hire you with a very low salary just by giving the "opportunity" of get an American visa (for non american citizens); companies like Infosys, Accenture or ACS (between others) are making this activities their "way of living'.

About 5 years ago, we were 5 DBA's in the company and I was the only one ourside US, now I am the nearest, 2 are in India y 2 more in China (earning less than the half of my salary, and I learn the half of the salary of my ex- coworkers!)

Welcome to real life...
