APRIL 1ST ARRIVES QUIETLY AT FIRMS AROUND THE US

Rate this Entry
Most lawyers I've spoken with have had a much quieter April 1st than normal. April 1st is the opening day of H-1B filing season because it is the first day you can file for a visa in the fiscal year that starts October 1st. We'll know in a few days whether filings were up or down. Given the Neufeld Memo and the fact that the cap for last year was available for so long, I'm doubtful usage will be up even if hiring is up. But we'll have to wait and see.

    At the rate the things are going many corporations may not apply for H1B after all...BofA cant apply for H1B because of TARP but they stopped hiring in the US since March last year when they were banned from hiring H1B...in fact they have laid off a lot of people...they acquired Merril Lynch and openly now state that they rarely hire in the US....

    "said Gary Townsend, president of Hill-Townsend Capital LLC, a Chevy Chase, Maryland-based investment firm that owns Bank of America warrants. "Bank of America is less likely to invest and hire in the U.S. given our government's current policies."

    As I said this is the Neufeld memo-Charles Grassley vision for America!

    Why do you think ADP report said 23,000 private jobs were lost in the US instead of an expected 40,000 jobs gain? Today's jobs report is likely going to be good on paper mostly due to government jobs with lackluster private hiring in this country.

    For Immigration Lawyers in Australia, April 1st was the calm before the storm. Later this month, the new Skilled Occupation List will be published. This new list will substantially reduce the occupations that will qualify for migration through the General Skilled Migration Program.

    I will post a more elaborate comment and entry on my blog once the new list is published.
