Will US clamp down on H1 visas make Canada attractive for Amazon HQ2?
Finding good candidates has always been the biggest bottleneck to getting things done in my experience at Amazon. The tightening of US visa rules has it made it harder to recruit. Worse, many of my foreign colleagues are finding it harder than ever to get their visas renewed.
Could the worsening US immigration environment be a sufficient reason for Amazon execs to choose a location in Canada for the new headquarters? From what I hear it is much easier for professionals to get work visas in Canada than in the US.
