H-1B TALLY FOR FIRST WEEK JUST ONE-THIRD OF LAST YEAR'S NUMBERS

Rate this Entry
USCIS has released figures from the first week of the H-1B season and
filings for the 65,000 H-1B "regular" cap slots for the fiscal year
that begins in October were just 13,500. That is less than one third of
the 42,000+ received during the same period last year and only about
one-tenth of the number filed two years ago.  Only 5,600 masters cap
applications were filed against the 20,000 cap in that category.

    If they are hiring mostly outside the country, they dont need to utilize H1-Bs.

    ...and people who think those jobs are going to Americans are deluding themselves.

    I think under utilization of H1Bs will be the norm for a few more years until unemployment goes back to where they were.

    When that time comes, mostjobs would have been already on solid footing on other countries and they won't be coming back anymore.

    Flip side of Durbin....if they dont act, jobs will continue to go abroad and unemployment will not be coming down anytime soon. The lowest it will reach is 5.e% before the next recession as it did in the 1980s...last time Singapore and Hong Kong took all the jobs, this time India, China, Australia and Canada will join in ******* America dry.
