Re: h1b salary data
For the 2014 data on your site, there are 600 listings with base wages under $32,000.00.  A person would have to be REALLY stupid to move to the US for less than $15.69 per hour.

Re: h1b salary data
Amazing how when you enter IBM India Private Limited your argument falls apart isn't it?

But hey, I'm willing to put your data against mine since it looks like we both use the LCA data.

How about we go to Keep America At Work dot com and click on the 2014 or 2015 maps on the left hand sidebar?

h1b salary data
salarytalk.org/h1bwage

 

This website has all the wage information with superb charts to understand wage distributions for h1b workers across the US. Yes, there are a few low paid workers, but for the most part salaries being paid out to the h1b workers is way above the median us income level.

re: H-1B Workers Not Best Or Brightest, Study Says
Hello,

Im among the "less talented". I think some of this information is prejudiced and partisan. The argument - appear to be somewhat less talented on average, as indicated by their lower wages, than the Americans

doesnt hold, I get paid less because I demand less. I demand less because I need less, my country pays me far lesser than the US, so to me, its great!

As far as less talented, im less trained, we dont have the resources. Im also a Mensa member, from a country where the smartest people in the world are born. If we arent rich, stupidity does not follow.

Im tired of what im increasingly seeing as racial digs - "code monkey" "you get what you pay for" and so forth. Am I wrong?

I dont have a solution for your fear for your job, this situation is complex. I do know that blaming people you do not know or care about is not a solution, just a bigger problem.

Top quartile EE/CS graduate here, from a top 20 university. Have submitted my resume thousands of times to firms like Facebook, Google, etc., without even so much as the courtesy of a response or interview. Hard to believe that these firms are looking for talent if they're not even bothering to call me or my professional peers up for interviews. That H-1B is even allowed is a travesty.

"In the CS case the former foreign students appear
to be somewhat less talented on average, as indicated by their lower
wages, than the Americans." No, what this fact is saying that H-1B workers are paid less by companies. It doesn't say anything about their intelligence.

your problem is you are a whiner and refuse to accept the reality of the global business blaming h1bs rather than greed of corporations.

re: H-1B Workers Not Best Or Brightest, Study Says
Yes, but the companies are competing globally against others with lower costs, so they may not have the option of paying more. If an employee doesn't bring in more revenue than what it costs to employ him/her, then there's no point in hiring anyone. Stuff that increases employment costs, like unions or Obysmal-Care, isn't helping, either.

re: H-1B Workers Not Best Or Brightest, Study Says
Don't forget, engineering and science are simply not considered "cool" in popular culture. Look at TV and movies. Most of those portrayed as being into those fields are stereotyped as geeks or "eccentric" weirdos. We have a culture of people wanting easy money, like on reality shows, yet fewer and fewer who take up the challenge of more difficult courses of study like engineering. Add in the pathetic state of primary education - especially in math and science - and you end up with a shortage of talent.
