Also, we should not have to wait till October.Preference must be given to IT workers who already worked in US on H1B for 6+ yrs. They should be given Greencard.Companies should leverage the Business Partnerships that have been already built by years of Understanding, Hardwork, Common Principles, Appreciation etc.

The changes are for the worse, and will make it easier for body-shops to bring in cheaper workers and pawn them off to third parties. This change reverses some of the good that the Neufield memo instituted.

The bottom line is that body shops - primarily foreign body shops - are the worst abusers and this puts them back in a position to continue their fraud and abuse of the system.

This is crony capitalism at its finest. The body-shop industry demanded, and the USCIS complied.

Why do they need to transfer their "smart" personnel here? They must ALL be here already. Every time I call tech support, I always get a dumb one located back in the mother land. I end up teaching them a thing or two before I request them to bump me to level 2 in hopes of getting some useful advice...

Lawyers and legislators, of course, can't be brought in on an L1B visa.

IT's Reputation: What the Data Says
InformationWeek's IT Perception Survey seeks to quantify how IT thinks it's doing versus how the business really views IT's performance in delivering services - and, more important, powering innovation. Our results suggest IT leaders should worry less about whether they're getting enough resources and more about the relationships they have with business unit peers.
