  • New Bill introduced in US to eliminate abuse of H1B visa programme

    A top American Senator has introduced a legislation that he claims is aimed at eliminating fraud and abuse of the H-1B visa programme, but provisions of which would make it tougher for Indian-Americans to get this popular work visa.

    It also provides that the wages paid to H-1B visa holders must be the highest of the locally-determined prevailing wage for the occupational classification in the area of employment; the median average wage for all workers in the occupational classification in the area of employment; or the median wage for skill level two in the occupational classification found in the most recent occupational employment statistics survey.

          I dont understand this. I mean, on one side, the government is trying to increase H1B quota as a part of immigration reform procedure and on the other hand a bill is introduced which makes H1B visas tougher...I am confused...

            As well, according to recent reports, the USA has a dearth of STEM graduates or professionals (not even half of the requirement). In that case, how can the bill expect the presence of less than 50% H1B employees in a company.....
