We’re the only ppl who need to wait for GC for over 100 years probably. We’re modern slaves. They just make us work and pay taxes, but don’t give us any social benefits. Many US companies succeeded because of Indian engineers. Boeing/GE/Microsoft/Google/Amazon/Facebook and etc. Look how we are treated. It is unfair! Change is needed!

Edited: the system is designed to limit ppl of colors coming into the country. White ppl are indeed racists

    Dude, how about making SOME OF your compatriots stop cheating in H1B lottery first?You know exactly what I am talking about… And these people who cheated are the reason why you need to wait for that long…
    BTW, SOME of your compatriots should change their behavior, talk less, code more, and stop backstabbing your colleagues…

    I just want to speak the truth. I know many productive and nice Indians, and I enjoy working with them. Those terrible people I mentioned above have destoryed Amazon Alexa, the team I was previously in, and your reputation, big time.

      Have you thought about the possibility that crappy folks exist in all races?
      Aug 11, 2018
    • Facebook jKne44
      Yes I tried to think that way. Shitty people exist in all races; however, I can't keep myself from thinking that there is a higher chance of getting backstabbed when dealing with people of a certain race. I am not judging a certain group of people, I just want to protect myself. I believe you also don't want someone to claim your work as his in team meeting right?

      That's cheap and fucked up. The right way to handle this is to correct or challenge the claim right there. If that wasn't possible, take a big chunk of work and just do it. Ensure you're not near-anony🐭ly contributing. Your manager needs to know.

      Negative. If management can’t sort it out and have employees fight themselves the system is fuked up. I don’t care if it’s fb or fang, change team or gtfo immediately!!!

    Then why the fuck don't we go to some other country?

    That's right the TC is too much even with all the other restrictions. The poor FANG slaves!

    STFU or do something to stop other Indians from cheating the system.

    It's all the perspective with which we look at it. H1B is a temporary visa program. Them giving GCs is just a bonus. Getting it means it's good, otherwise we just pack our bags and leave. Looking at it this way reduces stress and anxiety. GC processing is just a way for us to work here as long as we want.

    On the other hand, they don't treat us as their people (citizens), and so I don't treat this country as mine (for now). Instead of buying house/investing in things that provides employment locally to someone, I keep everything invested in liquid assets and accrue my net worth. The day they say that we won't give anymore GCs, I will just say f*** you, take all my money, and leave.

      Racist much? But I do understand where you're coming from. Many of us aren't aware of some grooming basics. That said, most Indians never skip showering in the morning. Also, we have the cleanest asses. You can kiss my ass, knowing it's extremely clean, and I'll do the needful for your promotion. Dear.

    I don't get this. You are paid well. You get huge benefits from taxes - schools, roads, security and safety, parks and recreation...

    I don't understand how this is so offensive to you?

      Sorry but immigrants don’t get any benefit. No social security (which we pay into), no Medicare (which we also pay into), no control over govt though voting (which we pay HUGE chunks too). People are paid to do their jobs and outside of the FANG utopia, most of these engineers are underpaid for the work they do. They come because they want to provide for their familiar and live with hard work and dignity. But they pay a pretty hefty price for it.

    Also there are just too many Indians working on H1 -50% of whom would not have got jobs without these shady ass consultancies

    Why don’t good Indian engineers return home or move to a place where they are not treated ‘unfairly’?

    Indians and the US are like best fuck buddies. They just have sex, get benefits from each other but never give any commitment. It's a good deal and win win, bro.

    The responses here are a real poor display of empathy. I don’t think the system is fair. Ultimately though the long term solution is to move the jobs where the talent is. So move these jobs out to India or another hub and build that up. I think once Indians really stop tolerating the unfairness that might happen. Or new talent hubs will emerge internationally . With the attitude of some Americans (or immigrants who got their GC/ citizenship and now pretend they were never an immigrant), it’s about time talent stopped wasting its time here.

      Yes. Other races waste no time in pouring their hatred when they see such threads. The problem with golden handcuffs is that the person puts them on by themselves. In the end it’s a prison but the one you entered on your own. Most clever form of exploitation

    I actually agree with op. Native Americans have been taking advantage of for far too long. Their people have been slaughtered and lands taken from them. Each Native American should be given 500 TC from a FAANG company to make up for this injustice.

    Why didn’t you go for a PhD or something that serves as enough evidence that you are worth accelerating the GC process? Cuz right now, comparing your situation with slavery tells me you aren’t worth horse shite let alone GC. Dude, what the fuck is underpaid? If you couldn’t negotiate an offer n got low balled don’t fucking generalize it. If your friends couldn’t do the same and are making peanuts, same, do not fucking generalize. I can bet you must be one of douchebags who thinks he is smart just because where he is from or who somewhere heard Americans need Indians to prosper and tries to downplay others in your team. Honestly, every single one of my friends all below 30 are making over 50 Lakhs an year working in tech in INDIA! The bullshit that you cannot make money there or you gotta support family, thats why you are in the US just won’t cut through. You could move back to motherland and live without Gc worries. But you won’t. Why? Two reasons, its easy money here. Yep it is. You could be a shitass engineer and still make 6 figures in the bay area. Not going to happen in India. Secondly, you love showing off your cheap Armani “Exchange” cologne or that coach wallet which your wife bought from Ross to the rest of the people there. So stfu and gtfo if you feel like a slave and prove that you are not.
