      Looks like Google has really dropped their hiring bar to the floor.

      And you still couldn’t make it.
      What does that say about you ?

      The question is whether I tried yet or not? But like I mentioned in my above comment that Google has started hiring dimwits like you. I guess now is the time to try!

      @Bihari Indian media is shit, they spread false propaganda. US news/uscis websites are better sources

      Ndtv is another level of stupid. This news might be true, but I usually ignore ndtv too.

      There’s nothing stopping you from hiring a Bachelors from Stanford or MIT. Just that person would need to be a US Citizen. Is that too much for ya?

      Well, I for sure won't work for Amazon if I am from MIT/Stanford/Carnegie/UC Berkeley.
      😂😂😂😂

      Every Tom, Dick and Harry can get into Amazon. All you need to do is show up for the interview.

      This move would mostly impact L1B folks.

      I would imagine most Stanford or MIT grads are citizens? Tuition is over $60k/year right? Unless your family is rich.

    This is fair for all advanced degree holders from US universities. How non core CS are screwed?

      "top paid workers" - not all majors (non CS) offer 100k+ salaries after your masters 😉
      Nov 30, 2018
    • IBM / EngSpar007
      "Top paid workers" means there is more demand for CS graduates than other fields and there are enough US citizens available in non CS fields with respect to demand. So this is not a problem created by CS graduates or the Government. This is simple supply and demand math.
      Nov 30, 2018
    • Tesla / Other72828e73he
      Yes but if you restrict H1B to only high paid workers, are you saying only CS graduates deserve to be here?
      Dec 1, 2018
    • IBM / EngSpar007
      I'm not saying non CS guys don't deserve to be here. I'm saying that h1B is for filing the gaps between supply and demand. If there will be more demand for non CS guys then companies will start paying more and thus they will be equally benefitted.
      Dec 1, 2018
    • IBM / EngSpar007
      Higher salary is driven by higher demand. If there will be more demand for non CS guys in a field, companies will be forced to pay higher to attract talent. Those companies are not paying that much because they could fill the demand by hiring locally and easily. Less competition to attract/retain talent.

    As an immigrant, I don't understand why you say this is bad news.
    It is only fair to select higher skilled people for these so-called "specialty occupations".
    I agree that this favors US masters degree holders, but consider those master/PhD students who were receiving some sort of tuition/financial assistance by serving as TAs or RAs. This is somehow a return on investment for the US.
    Many countries have merit-based systems. Just look at Canada.

      It is still lottery shit granted with slightly increased odds for US degree holders. And it does not exclude degree holders from crap US universities like Northern Virginia University and Temple University. A lot of folks from one particular southern state in India go to MS programs in crap universities and then join bodyshops at 65k salaries. This solves nothing.
      Dec 1, 2018
    • Gilead Sciences / OtherBayT8
      What they need to do is to just create a system based on salaries. So highest salary earners get H1 first, and then any remaining visas are allotted to lower salaries. Lottery system is stupid and backwards

      I agree with the crap school issue completely.
      I'd like to agree with you on the salary-based plan, but remember many smaller companies or research organizations are looking for highly skilled foreign workers, but do not have the ability to compensate on the same level as large tech companies.
      Those orgs should also have a chance of getting H-1B workers.
      Dec 1, 2018
    • Gilead Sciences / OtherBayT8
      Research institutions and universities already have a separate H1B (not included in quota). Private sector companies better pay highest salaries or hire Americans. There is no need for a foreign worker for a job that pays < 120k in the Bay area, which, by the way, is the max salary for employees of Indian IT companies.

    There’s nothing new in that article. It just says that the lottery order will be reversed. I have been hearing that for past 1 month.

    I hate the Indian media when they publish articles that contain no new info, and serve only as click baits. @bihari GTFO

    So USCIS just reverses the order and is no where close to merit based system as there’s still this lottery shit.

    They should remove the lottery bs altogether and use a point based system like Canada. That will keep people like @Bihari out of the country, who can’t speak English 🤣🤣🤣

      Points based on what criteria?
      Dec 1, 2018
    • Facebook Buk Lau
      Google Canada’s point based system

      It considers various things like salary, degree, etc.
      Dec 1, 2018
    • VMware Abcd123!
      Degree - they are already considering.
      Considering salary would be biased against small companies.
      What else can they consider? What is the ‘etc’ part you refer to?
