Do you feel this happens at your company?
- Facebook lmaooI think the main reason would be a lot of citizens wouldn't want to work for Oracle. I have never met anyone who would perceive it as a prestigious company. They were an innovative company back in the day..sad how times change.
- Hahahahaha hahahahaha! Abuse! If you want to see who is really abusing the system, you should go to the USCIS website and download the data of companywise visa applications and allotment. If you remove 3 companies from there: Cognizant, infy and TCS (all body shopping companies with questionable tech talent) in that order apply for and get most of the H1bs. It’s that huge, that if you remove these 3 companies from the lottery, we won’t need a lottery. And I am not exaggerating. You can download and do the math yourself. Poor American tech companies on an average take about 6k visas every year.
Thats 2016 numbers. Out of 65K + 20K student visas you can have a look at the number of visas allotted per company. Look at Oracle numbers. Look at numbers for product companies. These are companies that hire from the 20K student visas as well.
And then look at the numbers for Cognizant, Infy, TCS, Wipro. These do not hire from colleges (for tech) so they are purely in the 65K numbers.
Btw, I am not saying that Oracle does not abuse the system. But I think there are other companies that top the list before we reach Oracle.
And I might be hysterical :), no sarcasm intended. I do not claim to be the person with best of knowledge on immigration. But the data, I feel, is pretty absurd. You can correct me with facts.Jan 27 0
