H-1B update Part II

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
 
Thanks to the people at http://www.forthecause.us/, here’s Lou Dobbs report  (Friday-  June 23, 2006) on the H-1B visa crisis, including a segment of Programmers Guild founder John Miano testifying before the U.S. Congress.

 Links to the two GAO reports are also provided http://www.forthecause.us/ftc-video-CNN-WarOnMiddleClass_060623.wmv

  CNN Lou Dobbs - video:
Ten Years of Weak Oversight of H1-B Program Costs Americans Good Paying Jobs  The war on our middle-class continues unabated.
[More information: The GAO actually issued two reports about the H1-B program, which you can download here.

 H-1B Visa Program: Labor Could Improve Its Oversight and Increase Information Sharing with Homeland Security

and

H-1B Visa Program: More Oversight by Labor Can Improve Compliance with Program Requirements. ]

 But if you have the time you can  review the full Judiciary Committee testimony:  It is even more interesting, although quite long -   More than  one hour!

and  if  H-1B computer programmers  are underpaid   could it also be that  (foreign H-1B) engineering professionals are also  underpaid????   and are H-1B  holding down  wages?????  What is the impact to American Engineering  Professionals  ?
