Thumbs down Time for a letter of boycott

Hil,

I think it is now quite evident that the AILA lobby as well as the H1B body shops like Infosys had a hand in influencing this rule. Immigration Voice needs to take a stand. If we don't get...

An even better bill!

This is an even better bill! Prioritizing the highest salaries first cuts out the cheap Indian outsourcing firms as well as the low cost commodity developers.

Post Is this 1615-AC05?

Does this policy memo refer to 1615-AC05, 1615-ZB44, or 1615-AB97? Is IV going to send us all a standard email template to send before January 4, 2016? That is the deadline specified in the memo...

Post What about Indian CEOs of tech companies?

I realize I'm an edge case, so could really do with some advice. I was born in India but left when I was a few months old. There's hardly anything Indian about me except the food that I eat, and the...

Eye-opening - why not blog about it?

Admin2,

I attended Aman's conference call this past Sunday and he talked about how IV believes in doing advocacy - by calling your congressman instead of going on Twitter.

Be that as it may,...

All of us can call our congressmen, ask for cosponsorship, and collect petition signatures, but what good will it do if Paul Ryan has staunchly stated that he will never bring a piece of...

hil,

Many in the anti-immigrant camp do not support HR 213, even though it doesn't increase the overall number of green cards one bit because they see us as taking their jobs away from them. Why...

Just because I make generalizations doesn't mean it's not true. This mentality needs to change if you want to fight the anti-immigrant forces in this country.

As for H1Bs, there are tons of...

I've read through this bill and at a brief glance, can glean the following points:
1) Wage floors to be established for L-1s
2) More enforcements on what is truly an L-1 specialty worker
