Re: Donald Trump’s ‘no extension to H-1B visa’ proposal may affect thousands of Indian professionals

The problem with the H1B - and mind you I had come here on H1B - these days is that lot of unscrupulous companies have abused it no end.

Imagine someone from a non-metro place from India is given a chance to come to the USA. Such a person wont mind working for below US market rate. He/She does not know that the job they are doing is worth, say $75 per hour. Their visa sponsors charge the client the real rate like $100 but pay only $45 or $50 at most.

Sometimes, the Indian companies will undercut the other local companies and bid for a lower rate as they know that their H1B 'slaves' will work for anything they say.

This has led to many jobs being lost to H1B 'slave' candidates.


On the other side, the immigration process in the USA is a mess. Not because there isn't a defined procedure for visas like Green card, etc. But because the long delays in the process which really create unnecessary anguish and worries for the applicants and the uncertainty which affects jobs.

The whole H1B extension process used to be simpler before, but then they introduced many new regulations and it did benefit some (H4B Spouse EAD) etc but then again, the long delays totally defeat the purpose of this immigration process.

I feel the US should have a system like some other countries where there is clarity about total time required for any type of immigrant visa, and a skill and experience based system to qualify.
