Facebook sued for 'denying opportunities to US workers'

The US Department of Justice has accused Facebook of discriminating against American workers by giving hiring preferences to immigrants. Facebook disputed the allegations, but said it was co-operating with the department. The lawsuit concerns Facebook's use of temporary H-1B visas, which are often used by tech companies to bring highly skilled foreign workers to the US.
