COULD H-1BS BE PART OF STIMULUS BILL?

Rate this Entry

Some are talking. Anti-H-1B Computerworld writer Patrick Thibodeau is concerned enough that he's trying to rile up the troops.

    It seems clear to me that in order to increase the H-1B visas, the pure body shops that simply import workers without any projects lined up would have to be thrown under the bus. Whether the reform will try to overreach and harm legitimate companies is not clear.

    I do have an issue with Indian Consulting companies using the H-1B visas. Ideally, they should be using only the L1 visas since in reality they transfer their employees from the overseas offices. Whether the L1 visa should be scrapped in order to protect American tech workers is a separate issue. They also harm selective users of the H-1B visas like smaller American companies that have been losing out on the lottery for the past two years.

    Perhaps Patrick Thibodeau would like to see jobs move abroad and they would move even if tax breaks are rescinded because they get better tax breaks in countries flush with cash..Singapore, Australia, Canada and others. I am afraid recessions are always used to move jobs abroad.

    i agree, infy, tcs and all those body shopping IT companies should only be allowed to use the L1, leave the h1bs for those who truly deserve and require it, like the international students who have spent$$$ studying here and having acquired the necessary social and economic skills
