What do you think of the Suspension of premium processing of H-1B visas?


By paying an additional premium of $1,225, companies could get an H-1B application processed within 15 days, whereas a standard process takes 3-6 months. The temporary suspension of the fast-track processing of the H-1B visas - widely used by the Indian IT industry - may last six months. Will this make US companies less competitive? Will this open up jobs for highly skilled US citizens? Will this shrink US innovation? HB-1 get paid the same as US citizens - so by making the worker pool smaller - will wages for programmers increase?

    That's a good point. I alway thought they had to be paid the same as American workers, but the age thing - yes I agree.
