The Trump Administration is planning to increase restrictions and heighten scrutiny of the H-1B program, according to a new “Buy American and Hire American” executive order signed by President Trump today.
US Chamber of Commerce senior vice president and chief policy officer Neil Bradley said economic growth requires a skilled workforce, so it should be a priority to make sure American workers have the skills required to fill open jobs with American companies.
As part of his ‘Buy American, Hire American’ push, President Trump is ordering an overhaul of H-1B visas.
An executive order by President Donald Trump designed to restructure a visa program for highly skilled workers that is used largely by the tech industry will have little immediate effect, Seattle tech leaders said Tuesday.
The minimum wage for H1B visa recipients is $60,000, unchanged from 1989. Let me emphasize that for you.
This year the H1B visa lottery system will end and a new system will take its place with an emphasis on higher skills and masters degrees, a White House official announced in a press briefing this week.
On the same day that US President Donald Trump was expected to order a review of the popular H-1B visa program, Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull put up his own wall.
About 85,000 H-1B visas are distributed annually by lottery. Many go to technology companies, which argue that the United States has a shortage of skilled technology workers.
US President Donald Trump wants to retool the fabled H-1B visas for skilled workers sought by Silicon Valley heavyweights, a White House official said Monday.
Australia today abolished a visa programme used by over 95,000 temporary foreign workers, majority of them Indians, to tackle the growing unemployment in the country+ .
