If they're lucky, they'll get a 2 year visa. If they're really lucky, they'll get a 2 year extension, and then hold to go home and never come back.

Plus, 180,000 yen a month for doing highly specialized work 60 hours a week. Who needs Silicon Valley?

No such thing, for the skilled the avg salaries start between 10-15M, and PR option is available after 3 yrs.. but majority of the skilled types do not stay and either move to US/Australia or go back to India..

Many of the 1.5 million engineers that graduate in India every year end up working for IT companies even if their specialisation was Civil or Mechanical or Aeronautical Engineering because that is the only industry that does mass hiring, and also because any engineer can be taught coding.

India does not have enough engineers to design indigenous aircrafts, submarines, high speed trains because the IT industry cannibalises all the talent.

I am talking about the average salaries of the skilled engineers, there is big difference between the skilled engineers and the average engineers.
