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 SEAINT.org 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 www.zazona.com/shameh1b
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??
