H1B - bill introduced to ax per country green card limit7d
Would like to know pros and cons 😆
- Microsoft Dr. RootDude, you must be new. These things come and go every year. Relax, have some Bourbon. We're all in the same sinking ship for the next 2 decades 🥃
- My concern is that this only makes things worse without some solution to the consulting shops spamming.
The India queue is only long because of those body shop that fill the queue with 3rd rate people. If only the Indians capable of getting into good companies were in the queue it would actually be not so bad already.
While the cap is unfair it's also incidentally protecting the system from the abusive practices by the body shops.
I think it's better to fix that problem first and that this bill is actually a step backwards until then.
- Yup. Politicians are just trying to show they want to do something about legal immigration. But their priority is illegal immigration.
If this bill becomes law then it hurts talented people from small countries (population wise) and they wait forever.
This is totally against diversity we need in engineering. (At least)7d1
- That 100+ year of wait time for Indians is an insult. Why give a f*ck for USofA? The startup scene in India is heating up. Why not move back?
- It's not an insult. It's the result of a business strategy by Indian companies with the support of the Indian government.
They set up a whole consulting industry as an intentional, government sponsored initiative with systems designed to pump out as many h1b/i140 combos as possible including many low quality feeder schools that got accredited by bribes, and a whole bunch of government incentives and other policies designed to expand these body shops.
Before the the India queue was like China's, a couple years but not a big deal. It was after the Indian government cranked up this body shop industry from around 2007 that is really started getting bad.
Indians could easily fix this themselves by outlawing this crap back in India but they don't want to. They voted for this bullshit and they are proud of it but they don't connect the dots to the greencard queue.
Then they come here and whine that it's unfair. Pathological.
- Indians ARE to blame. It's a national policy of India to abuse the US visa system and every single Indian voter shares responsibility for that national policy.
Other nations don't have a government sponsored national policy to create schools and business to export workers abroad and that's why other nations don't have a 100 year queue.
The solution to this problem is in India and it's up to Indian voters like you to elect an Indian govt that will fix this Indian problem.
The country cap is doing its job and protecting the United States from an abusive policy of a foreign government.
- @heyyeh your arguments lack logic. The US Visa system legally allows whatever Indian consultancy firms are doing; so either it's the US Visa system that wants to be abused or the abuse is only in your head. Don't forget, whatever be the quality of the talent that the Indian outsourcers bring in, and I agree it's mostly mediocre, it's the US clients who suck up to it; it's them who sponsor their green cards. As much as I would like that to change asap, it seems to make business sense for the US employers and contributes to India's prosperity. It's not India's fault that she has so many "sponsorable" employees. The sad part is that the bright(er), more talented Indians are getting buried under the sheer weight of their more abundant but lesser talented brethren.1h0
