  • H1B legislation

    Your newsletter commented that Congress has reconvened and is expected to pass theFY 2005 omnibus bill appropriations package very soon. This omnibus bill will likely contain provisions to provide relief for the H1B and H2B quotas.
    Questions:
    1) What is the timetable for this?
    2) If it passes is it likely that it will be enforced immediately?
    3) Where can I track this congress activity?

        The Stupidity Of The H1B Quota System
        by Xavier Augustin
        Whether it has been for the import of Japanese cars or Indian programmers, import quotas have always been bad for the players in the US domestic industry, here is why.

        Just one day after the new quota of 65,000 new H1B visas was opened, it was exhausted. Does it mean that there are 65,000 new jobs? Does it mean that the US economy has revived? Does it mean that there is a shortage of programmers in the USA? Certainly not.

        In September 2004, Computer world, announced that times remain tough for IT workers looking for jobs across the U.S. According to the Center for Urban Economic Development at the University of Illinois in Chicago, the IT job market remains tight in the U.S., with more workers than available jobs in many parts of the country.

        The University of Illinois study comes on the heels of an IT employment report released last week by the Arlington, Va.-based vendor group, the Information Technology Association of America. The ITAA report concurred that while there was a slight (2%) increase in IT employment early this year, IT job growth is expect to slow for the remainder of 2004.

        If the USCIS, reveals who sponsored whom, it would reveal enough facts whether to continue with the present H1B quota system or not.

        To understand H1B visas one has to recognize a contract industry in the US IT industry that is run predominantly by Indian consulting firms who are sponsors but not the actual users of skills.

        This layer of Indian consulting firms recruits, retains and relocates Indian professionals from India and then benches them in the US until they find a project.

        This layer hires in anticipation of demand. This speculative hiring was what happened from April 1, 2004 to October 2,2004. 2 Types of Hiring happened. One was by large consulting companies who fearing tighter L1 laws thought that all their employees working on US projects must hold an H1B visa. The other was by small consulting firms who are betting that the US economy may revive next year, after the holidays and elections and with outsourcing projects being discouraged.
