For them calculating the next bulletin is more important or maybe they are also part of this fraud. They come to this country but hook or crook and cry fowl when they get a better option. So a part of me says I guess its good, if these fraud immigrants are badly treated. But I know its a bad thing to say. Fraud is a disease in H1B, EAD, H4, L1 community and it is high time it is cured. It is more important than getting greencard or H4 ability to work. If the system is clean, there will no backlog and even genuine qualified H4 will get H1B visas. Currently most H4s are just waiting to get work permit so that they can join these fraud consulting firms. And those who are not IT based can fake resume and can even get a tester role.

"But a loophole inserted amid heavy industry lobbying allowed companies to sue the departing workers for financial damages.

TechServe Alliance, the lobbying organization that represents technology labor brokers, took credit on its website for blocking “the most onerous proposals” in the 1998 bill, saving employers from “burdensome new regulations.”

By allowing labor brokers to recoup costs incurred when workers quit, the law enabled them to disguise illegal penalties, critics say." Is an important info. These guys are no big, but could put in resources and also have a PAC. PAC gives them more leg room to lobby. If you look at their events they are active at chapter level too. One would think that if these slimy guys could do this how come our folks are not united and active against this disease before and even after getting green cards. It seems like a just cause to rid the program of bad apples that bring disrepute to the whole system.

Why is nobody talking about it? Why is other media houses quiet about it? Why are big companies like Google, Microsoft, Apple not talking about it? I do not know really.
The fraud is starting from the people who are defrauded, most of the time. Why would someone take up a job for 40-45K, if they have the skills required for a high skilled work visa? The obvious reason is that these people are coming in with fake resumes, proxy interviews, etc. I am sure some legitimate people get victimized too. But, that is just collateral damage. A significant percent of people who come here on H1 are not truly qualified. I have personally met people at work places that don't have the skills that they claim to have. I have heard many many stories through friends. I have heard people taking up jobs for which they don't have the skills and pay someone else in the team to do the work. The reference to Osmanabad University and the mentality of those students speaks volumes about what to expect. If only people with the right skills and qualifications are given H1 and L1 visas, EB2 and EB3 India wouldn't be backlogged this much.

A very very small percent of these fraud cases mentioned in this article have come to light because most of the time the immigrant settles it out with the fraud company because they themselves have a lot of baggage.

If you say these stuff to anyone in the Indian community, they will call you a traitor.

Why would Microsoft and Apple care if they can get cheap work force? There is no reason to believe that anything is going to change.
