Interesting. CIGNA is replacing US workers on our soil today (right now) with cheaper foreign workers and laying off the Americans who have the same skill set. The layed off workers have been instructed to teach the workers their job over the next month or they don't get their severence. So even with all the "rules" in place right now for this program, some companies are ignoring them anyway.

re: India Lodges Complaint Over H-1B Visa Rejections
This article is missing a lot of numerical context.

Over what period was the increase measured? One year? Ten years?

Since the --increase-- is 28%, what is the --actual-- rejection rate %?

Is the 28% for all rejections or only "Indian tech pros"? If all, then that could simply reflect a shift to granting more requests for applicants from other countries.

Either way, the rising rejection rate could also reflect an increase in applications. What's the % increase in applications?

As for "Sharma did not cite a source," I know for a fact that 83% of statistics are made up on the spot. You can quote me on that and cite me as a source.

Interesting that India's commerce minister seems clueless about what a visa is for. The whole purpose of requiring visas and otherwise limiting immigration is to control how many foreign nationals can come into the US and to monitor them while here. That control is needed both for national security and supporting American businesses and our economy even if at the expense of India's plans.

India doesn't get a say in how we manage the process and level of difficulty they feel.

Since late 70's and early 80's Indian government had flooded US universities, industries in many many ways, their plan was highly ignored by many US law makers. Once these professionals played a big role in collecting funded money for what so called star war program at the time of R. Reagan. They used to write paper of no bases to collect grants, and who can read it!!. It was propaganda war with russia. In the last 20 years, these prof., engineers, and IT etc who are working for the fortune 9900 were able to transfer the hi-tech industries to India. Smoothly US had lost its basic industry infrastracture. The immigration law does not have a well realistic study or research of nations influences on the US civilization. The indians as well the chinese who are making money in US, hardly do invest a penny in USA economy. In another word, they manage, invest, and produce to reninvest in their country quitly. The overall return of such cultures to the US is below ZERO. To see this: check the hotels chains, dunkin donuts, etc. and see the degradations that occured in the genuian US establishment. Finaly, the US 500 and fortuns WALL allies have found an easy corrupted culture to expand and reshovel their techs a way from US middle class. And to keep a nontaxable industries. OFF sure banking were another establismnt were founded to keep the US $$ a way from it's societies and to loan the US invidiuals and biussineses with hi intrest rates.

The solution is simple: Stop Indians flood (sonamties) completely, ease grad. study for US nationals, and raise TAX tarrif on imported indians and chinese' products, then the US economy would refresh it self smoothly. BUT the problems will stay the same if the majorities of CONZGREZ are concern on their back loobiest shares. If this continue then the middle class US's will suffer a life worst than the basic Indians homeless.

But we are not doing anything to stop it. I am so sick and tired of looking for a job and all these vacancies are filled by foreign workers.

I liked your points. You are absolutely correct. What will happen to our recent graduated US students in IT? They can't get a job.

I thought it was only 72% of all statistics are made up :). Guess even that number is rising. I have to get with the times.

It's really a simple case of supply and demand.

Pick any city, let's say, Denver, Colorado. Now, bring in 100 busloads of freshly graduated plumbers (4,000 new plumbers), who want to enter into the plumbing business in Denver, and make a living.

The result? Wage rates for plumbers will become depressed. The existing 960 plumbers in Denver, once busy every day, and making a good living, will now have much less work, or no work at all.

The school for plumbers in Denver, will have no new American students. All the Denver highschool kids hear from their fathers and uncles that plumbing is no longer a good way to make a living. The plumber wages are going down, down, down. In droves, they choose some other path in life. Who can compete with improverished hordes of plumbers from India who will work for any price. India has 1.17 BILLION people, and many of them are coming here, flooding our labor markets.

This is what the H1B visa has done to the American engineering profession. H1B brings thousands busloads of foreign engineers to America, thus driving down wages, closing American engineering schools, and discouraging American kids from majoring in engineering.

This isn't any different when trying to get a work visum for India.
