    It’s good news if it’s happening although it’s 10 years too late. The service companies are like leeches and will not let go so easily. They will look for every loophole that can be exploited and even indulge in fraud to try and squeeze in that cheap labor with mediocre skills. The Indian service companies along with others like cts should just be banned altogether for sanity to return to the ridiculous immigration wait times.

      As someone who has been on h1b for the last 14 years, with multiple pending petitions in eb2 and eb3, i know my numbers and facts very well. I stick to every world I’ve said and also add that the only reason for h1b backlash and Indians in general is thanks to the service companies and the fraudster consultants.

      Do you even know what’s causing the backlog in eb1? If not for service companies there would be no backlog lol.

      They might be less talented. But definitely not the reason for ur wait time!

      Leeches? Like amazon will use any loophole in law to abuse employees and not pay tax? Unfortunately like we can’t ban amazon, we can ban these companies.. Truth sucks!!

      You either know nothing or are pretending to know nothing or perhaps are one of those consultancy employee.

      The EB2 wait time is due to EB3 to EB2 porting and eb3 is caused due to outsourcing companies ... not Fangs

      If that is the case, we need to block that.

    H1b has been facing a denial of service attack from Indian consulting companies. Looks like progress is being made fighting back against that.

    What caused the sharp increase from 2013 to 2014? Is it more masters students or more outsourcing company filings?

      It's entirely driven by the chop shops

    In a desperate attempt to increase revenue for American universities, Trump gave preference for Graduate students on lottery. Funny thing, he covered it up as they are doing skilled immigrants a favor.

      It is both. Where's the conflict?

      Conflict is used here in terms of variance, dissonance, incongruity. Thus, referring to any perceived dissonance between increasing revenue for American universities and doing skilled immigrants a favor.

      They are not doing anyone a favor. You can't take what someone already has and pretend that they are giving u in return for something else they want. Most american universities are useless. You can't say a IIT student is worser than a Masters student from a no name American university. India has good education and these days, have good exposure too. The only reason why they do masters here is to get a shot at Green Card. If you are not in any research groups in Stanford, MIT, CMU or likes of it, then your masters is waste. Even if you finish Masters from Stanford, just finishing off courses doesn't add any education value. When American education is not offering any educational value, forcing people to still pay for it by holding h1b as a hostage is not right. These people were qualified for the jobs they get hired even without this degree. Many American companies were directly hiring from India. Either way, they don't get Green Cards.
      So I don't see any value offered. Only taken.

    The quota got filled in less than a week. How is that a sign of dying down?

      The numbers still fell. In 2010 ~500000 f1 visas were issued, last year only ~300000 were issued. USCIS only accepts application for that one week. Even though the cap exceeded, total numbers filed is falling.
