H-1B EXHAUSTION TARGET: MARCH 8, 2011

Rate this Entry

New numbers are out on H-1B usage and the past week showed a substantial pickup in usage with more than 1700 numbers counted against the cap of 65,000. 36,600 H-1Bs have been counted now. I'm moving my exhaustion projection date up about two weeks. My target is based on a rolling four week usage average so variations from week to week are discounted. Usage over the last month has been about 1275 H-1Bs per week.


On the masters cap of 20,000, the pace is pretty much the same with 400 petitions counted in the last week and total usage of 13,400. At that pace, we will likely run out sometime around the end of the calendar year.
