Default I am happy

that something is done to stop abuse of employees. I think they should also look at L1 visa also. There is no salary stipulation for L1. Companies pay what ever they want..... place L1 holders where ever they want....

Isn't it illegal to hire out L1's as contractors? But even the large IT companies do it all the same.

FYI majority of Desi companies follow the rules as stipulated by US laws. There definitely are abuses in any law. Do you think all wallstreet firms played by rules in this financial mess.

If there are abuses that should be enforced. No doubt about it.
Please stop generalizing from these incidents. There are good majority of IV folks who work for good consulting companies.

If you don't want IV to be reduced to an organization of couple of hundred members, please stop generalizing. After all that is what anti-immigrants are doing.

Don't kill IV with your immature perspective.

Rather than targeting small H1 consulting companies...they have to target big IT firms with thousands of L1 visa. Thats bigger then the H1Bs...There is only 65K H1B per years. No one knows how many L1 visa they are issuing every year and there is no accountability.

Also the wage is too low.

Some American citizens/anti-immigrant will tell you you are taking their jobs with your H1.

For them, this is their country. All jobs should go to them rather than a foreigner like you.

What is your response for that ?

Dude, just because you don't see the word "some" in my post, don't tell me that i am generalizing.

I do make a clear distinction between good players and bad apples. If you cannot understand, let me know I will put it in simple words!!! Doh!!!

Much of the fuel for anti-immigrant community against H1B's have been hiring low wage worker over qualified American in the same area.

That's what is under the scanner. Once the abuses are addressed, anti-immigrants would run out of fuel.

Also a side effect of these could be Desi consultant employees getting better salary.
