Wipro and HCL are the original hardware makers. There was also one PCL (Pertech Computers) but guess HCL made it a mission to finish that off and suceeded. In 90s there was one dabba which went as HCL busybee. But guess HCL tied up with HP and guess that led to downfall of HCL as regards hardware. Came to know about current state of Wipro from you. BTW, long before it got into Dabba and Cybercoolie business Wipro was into consumer products. It still is. I remember buying Wipro Diapers over a decade back.

Cant help put that the guy who put them in business was George Fernandes. In 77-78 along with Coke, he also drove away IBM. Thats when came HCL and Wipro to fill the gap (like Thums up and Campa cola came up to replace Coke).

Wipro started with selling soap and then oil. And then a few more products.

Today it does that but the Wipro cyber coolie business is a separate entity and not related to the saboon tel business...

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

Today H1B visa holders are mainly working in big companies like Cisco, Apple, Wells Fargo, Intuit, etc.

If you try for a contract as a non H1B, for example, with Apple, the rate for a very well experienced senior developer is ..... just 80/hr!! Yes that low.

There are some jobs in contracting world which require senior experienced people but these companies are now used to the low wage H1Bs. So they cringe at giving good rates for the right candidates.

Anyway, if H1B restrictions come into play, then the tech industry wont hurt much as they will offshore lot of work.

I think my cleaning lady is in trouble with ICE as well. She has not showed up for over a month and not returning messages.

In general, there are more RFE's (Request for evidence) and some denials as well. But it's not like nobody is getting renewed.

Re: Donald Trump’s immigration crackdown

One thing that keeps coming in news is ‘dreamers’. Looks like these are ‘undocumented aliens’ (anyone calls them illegals now?) who came in as minors. The name comes from failed Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors (Dream) Act

More story in the link below.

Most companies are not transferring H1Bs... Even most of the dice.com job requirements state clearly 'USC/GC/EAD' only.
