F**k the visa system! Indians deserve better

Aug 11, 2018 74 Comments

We’re the only ppl who need to wait for GC for over 100 years probably. We’re modern slaves. They just make us work and pay taxes, but don’t give us any social benefits. Many US companies succeeded because of Indian engineers. Boeing/GE/Microsoft/Google/Amazon/Facebook and etc. Look how we are treated. It is unfair! Change is needed!

Edited: the system is designed to limit ppl of colors coming into the country. White ppl are indeed racists

    Dude, how about making SOME OF your compatriots stop cheating in H1B lottery first?You know exactly what I am talking about… And these people who cheated are the reason why you need to wait for that long…
    BTW, SOME of your compatriots should change their behavior, talk less, code more, and stop backstabbing your colleagues…

    I just want to speak the truth. I know many productive and nice Indians, and I enjoy working with them. Those terrible people I mentioned above have destoryed Amazon Alexa, the team I was previously in, and your reputation, big time.

      That's cheap and fucked up. The right way to handle this is to correct or challenge the claim right there. If that wasn't possible, take a big chunk of work and just do it. Ensure you're not near-anony🐭ly contributing. Your manager needs to know.

      Negative. If management can’t sort it out and have employees fight themselves the system is fuked up. I don’t care if it’s fb or fang, change team or gtfo immediately!!!

    Then why the fuck don't we go to some other country?

    That's right the TC is too much even with all the other restrictions. The poor FANG slaves!

    STFU or do something to stop other Indians from cheating the system.

    It's all the perspective with which we look at it. H1B is a temporary visa program. Them giving GCs is just a bonus. Getting it means it's good, otherwise we just pack our bags and leave. Looking at it this way reduces stress and anxiety. GC processing is just a way for us to work here as long as we want.

    On the other hand, they don't treat us as their people (citizens), and so I don't treat this country as mine (for now). Instead of buying house/investing in things that provides employment locally to someone, I keep everything invested in liquid assets and accrue my net worth. The day they say that we won't give anymore GCs, I will just say f*** you, take all my money, and leave.

    While you're at it, clean up all the garbage you leave at my apartment complex. This isn't Mumbai.

    This is ridiculous. The US owes us nothing. Just the same way you owe the US nothing. I am here because it’s currently beneficial for me. I will leave when it is not so. Quit whining like a little bitch

      Racist much? But I do understand where you're coming from. Many of us aren't aware of some grooming basics. That said, most Indians never skip showering in the morning. Also, we have the cleanest asses. You can kiss my ass, knowing it's extremely clean, and I'll do the needful for your promotion. Dear.

    You don’t know what slavery is. Have empathy for people in worse circumstances:

    I don't get this. You are paid well. You get huge benefits from taxes - schools, roads, security and safety, parks and recreation...

    I don't understand how this is so offensive to you?

      Sorry but immigrants don’t get any benefit. No social security (which we pay into), no Medicare (which we also pay into), no control over govt though voting (which we pay HUGE chunks too). People are paid to do their jobs and outside of the FANG utopia, most of these engineers are underpaid for the work they do. They come because they want to provide for their familiar and live with hard work and dignity. But they pay a pretty hefty price for it.
