  1. WHICH US CITIES ATTRACT H-1B WORKERS?

    The Pew Research Center has a new, fascinating study that shows the destination of H-1B workers. The most surprising result is that the Bay Area attracts fewer H-1B workers than one might expect.

    From the study:

    The San Jose, California, metro area, home of Silicon Valley, trailed the leading metro area on these measures, despite being home to some of the world’s most famous technology companies. The San Jose metro area had 22,200 H-1B approvals from fiscal 2010 to 2016, which amounted to two approvals per 100 workers.

    The average H-1B worker earns $80,600, which is considerably higher than the average college-educated American, who earns $72,376. In many Midwestern cities, it is impossible to make the case that H-1B workers are driving down salaries or that H-1B workers are saturating the supply of workers.


    Metro Area
    H-1B worker per 1,000 US workers
    Avg H-1B Salary
    Indianapolis
    0.640
    $71,700
    Minneapolis
    1.000
    $90,500
    Birmingham
    1.240
    $80,900
    St. Louis
    1.260
    $84,700
    Kansas City
    1.260
    $76,500
    Denver
    1.270
    $91,300
    Cincinnati
    1.370
    $70,200
    Omaha
    1.440
    $90,400
    Oklahoma City
    1.470
    $72,800
    Columbus
    1.760
    $72,500

    In all of these metropolitan areas, there are only 1 or 2 H-1B workers per 1,000 US workers, which is a minuscule percentage of the workforce. As usual, the bluster around the H-1B program pales in comparison to the actual facts.
