Re: The H-1B catch-22

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Attention  SEAINT  List members:

In response to Mr. Mike Murphy's message on the H-1B / Catch 22   I offer the 

I recently sent a reply  (twice)  using the list server.  

BUT it doesn't  appear to have been distributed  by the server.  I was NOT  
CC'd  on it nor have I seen and comments to my e-mail which  I thought  would 
generate some discussion.

Maybe my initial message listing numerous  references  -  sources was TOO 
LONG  to be distributed.

Here is an edited version:

Check the SEAINT archives for my previous message on this issue.

Here's something new

I have previously noted in prior message threads,   Take a look at the  "HALL 
OF SHAME"  database.  Using the  "FREEDOM OF INFORMATION  ACT"  a website has 
been developed  listing the LCA's   (Labor Condition Applications)  for H-1b  

Have you seen it?    You might want to take another look as the website has 
recently been  updated, upgraded   and EXPANDED.

Check out

There are now upwards of ONE MILLION RECORDS   !!!!!!!!

Try searching on Civil Engineering firms  (there is unfortunately no breakout 
for the structural discipline)  but you should be able to recognize the 
companies.  See what salaries some companies  are offering H-1B workers.    
While some are competitive (i.e.:  $69,000  for a structural engineer)    you 
SHOULD be able to find Civil Engineers for less than  $40,000

A summation for the records for the engineering disciplines indicates an 
AVERAGE SALARY of less than  $40,000.


But engineers shouldn't be TOO upset!
Try  searching the database for architects

I think you should be able to find architect's salaries  at less than 

SO where are engineers on this issue??

Don't sweat it!  
Consider it an honor!!!  
You're in good company with all the many engineering societies that shill for 
H-1b labor.
