How to maximize the benefit of green card?

Do companies give different consideration/salaries to green card holders? Are there jobs other than tech industry that are more profitable but limited to green card holders/citizens?

    Start a business (you can legally start one even without green card, but you can afford to fail at a venture with a green card)

      @dynasty001: You’re clearly an H1B with a comment like that. Our skill set doesn’t suck. H1B are cheap labor. Companies can pay them less and they will work harder for that green card. It’s classic exploitation.

      You missed the point. H1B is cheap labor for companies and that’s why they hire them. Even with the sponsorship cost, they have to pay them less than US native workers.

      i agree with GC you have more negotiating power. so not only you may get better offers outside you can negotiate in your current company of you do a great job. if you were to apply at oracle you woukd get rejected if you had GC or Citizenship
