H-1B visa program are being abused. Highly skilled and not so highly skilled foreign nationals recruited through H1B were not paid based on standards set by LCA or Labor Condition Application. Infosys an Indian multinational corporation is well known of paying H1B workers well below average wages. This is the reason why most American companies are willing to hire H1B workers like Amazon, Facebook, Google, Microsoft and others. Indians H1B manager hire more Indians H1B even though they have mediocre knowledge. They bias on hiring. If you have time to visit a company in their IT department, you will be able to see more than half of the workers are from India. There are thousands of American who are IT Engineers but struggling to find an IT jobs which pays them decent wages. I have heard some people lost their IT careers to h1b visa workers. Companies often use H-1B for cheap labor not because the US workers don't have the skills. Trump's policies are for Americans and not for foreigners. A shortage of workers is good for Americans to have more opportunities to land a good job, but this is not the care. It means that every American has an opportunity if they need it. The influx of skilled and not sot skilled foreign workers has historically led to lower wages and employment for American tech workers. Some businesses have fired American workers and replaced them with cheaper labor: temporary, foreign workers with H-1B visas. The program, created more than 25 years ago, allows American companies to fill gaps in the workforce from overseas with skills needed from employees, who can’t be found in the U.S. according to these giant corporation. But I don’t believe manpower with the same skills as the foreigners can’t be found in the U.S., the main purpose of these big corporation is cheap labor and earn more profits. Many businesses use the program as intended, but we discovered more and more are taking advantage of loopholes in the law to fire American workers and replace them with younger, cheaper, temporary foreign workers with H-1B visas. But before the American workers walk out the door they often face the humiliating prospect of having to train the people taking their jobs. H1B-visa defeats the purpose instead of adding newly highly skilled workers, they have replaced the one which is already their in the name of cheap labor, purely an abuse committed by a companies.
H-1B visa is the secret weapon of USA in terms of advantages when employers have difficulties in hiring American most capable of doing the right job. H1-B visa restrictions: Experts say US too will feel the heat of Donald Trump's plan. Today a legislation impacting H1-B visa programme has been introduced in the US House of Representatives making it difficult for companies in the US to employ skilled foreign workers. Among other things, the bill more than doubled the minimum wage requirement of H1-B visa holders to US $130,000. Ramifications for both sides, the IT Services Providers and the US economy: Skilled foreign workers who come to work in the United States on H1-B visas don’t just directly supplement the US IT industry with specialized skillsets, they also contribute indirectly to other industries in the US. Often H1-B workers bring their families along and thereby bring additional business for other industries like real estate, Banking, hospitality, to name a few. The effects of this announcement will impact the GDP and the overall business economy and growth of US. While 20 percent of H1-B visa quotas have been set aside for start-ups and small employers with 50 or fewer employees, there is no denying that this will be a dampener to the spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship. Are H-1B visa workers really stealing U.S. jobs? Yes and no. Let’s break this down. There is no fixed number of jobs, so there is no “stealing.” Firstly, there’s the framing “stealing jobs,” as if there is some fixed number of jobs in the U.S. instead of an economy that can expand or contract. There is no “zero sum” game: if a company hires a U.S. engineer and she helps her company build a successful new product, they will need to hire more engineers, sales people, marketers, finance people, support staff etc. Hiring her helped to create new jobs.

Ryan said, “So, do we want to make sure that a person with — like yourself, with a pre-existing condition gets affordable care? Of course. Of course. There is a better way to fix that problem without giving everybody else all these massive premium increases. Deductibles are so high it doesn’t even feel like you’ve got insurance anymore. So we — obviously, I would encourage you to go to our website and take a look at our plan, but let me just give you a few ideas: We believe that state high-risk pools are a smart way of guaranteeing coverage for people with pre-existing conditions.” Think wise.
