      For being one of the most efficient countries in the world, Japan’s labor force is actually one of the most inefficient. Sure, they get things done, but they sacrifice a lot of time and sometimes even their lives for the company. It’s a sick work culture.

    Get real. No "civilized" country since Rome can live without slaves. Call then that, inmates, immigrants, permanent residents, it's all the same. At the end, they buy their freedom. If they're lucky. I know because I'm one of them. Presently discriminated on citizenship (US), race (white) and age.

      I think you're missing the point, 0C. Yes H1s are free to leave but not free to enter. Their contact is good as long as they put long hours for the employer and depend on the employer's for their ability to stay in the country. They're expendable, they know it and obey every employer's whim.
      If this sounds like freedom to you, you don't know what freedom is.

      Free to leave means you are not a slave or an inmate. You are free to enter your own country.

      I am not free to enter India, so what?

      And now you're deliberately missing the point, 0C.

      The point is you are not even the least bit unfree. You come across like a pampered crybaby who expects the world to serve you. You're not a slave, though.

      3037, no one except Indians will agree to your point. You cannot demand the same rights as the citizens just because you are skilled enough to get a work visa. I am pretty sure I don’t have freedom like the citizens when I go to other countries. I am appalled at some entitled Indians. It seems the brain works in a completely different way. FYI, I am an immigrant.

    The deserving people will finally get the jobs. America will be great again.
    If they deport all H1B turned citizens, then America will be even greater again.

      Deserving people can only get jobs after undeserving immigrants leave? Doesn't sound much deserving to me.

    There aren't many h1b outside of tech because the massive h1b spam by Indian consulting firms is an effective denial of service attack.

    In tech you can work out of Bangalore office while waiting a few years to get your visa. In most other industries there isn't that opportunity to work outside the country while waiting. There is also no OPT/STEM so the student visa approach is limited as well.

    So they just can't really rely on h1b visa for their career. They have a harder time finding anyone to sponsor them and if they lose the first lottery that's likely game over.

    It used to be a common visa for many occupations but after AC21 the Indian consulting companies really cranked up the h1b/i140 assembly line and spammed applications so hard it shuts everyone else out.

    The MAGA will come out and applaud. Then the MAGA will complain about slow services everywhere, and blame the H1b.

      Yeah, surprise, it is supposed to be a visa for ANY specialty and it's one of the great harms to America that Indian consulting firms are fucking it up.

    I don’t get it... how do you know all those people are on H1Bs? Do you ask everyone you meet to show you their papers? Or do you just assume everyone with a foreign accent is here on H1B?

      The ASAP part especially. Any rule change would apply to applications and renewals not approved visas.
