It is appreciable and admirable that the Congressional committee has passed a legislation that proposes to increase the minimum salary of H-1B visa holders from $60000 to $90000 and impose a number of restrictions on the work visa.To our understanding, a similar version of the bill to be passed by the senate before it can be sent to white house for US President Donald Trump to be signed in to law.
Once this law implemented then it is a great justice to both Americans as well as H-1B workers. Congratulations to Donald Trump for the historic&popular bill and a great justice to the workers.
In the beginng when these news were coming out, reports of many IT companies shows their disappoint over this proposed law and echoed their voice against this bill which shows their injustice to their own workers who are on H-1B visa.
It is a real and truth , as per our observation in the past, the life of H-1B visa workers doomed due to lower salary paid by the IT companies to both skilled and unskilled on one side and the other side tax cut and huge cost of living. These two factors tightened their life in to a great extent and injustice was made to their own workers.
Another truth is that these IT companies earned exorbitant profit margin and forgotten the welfare of the workers who actually the back bones of these IT companies.The IT companies looted the money and earned huge profit neglected the life of hard working resulted injustice to the employees. A sad news !!! Now once this bill comes then what they enjoyed earlier profit margin comes down that is the worry now , nothing will affect their business.
To our clear understanding ,the proposed above bill is not a restriction but benefits both Americans as well as talented H-1B visa workers in the future.Ones the bill comes , no doubt it helps Americans workers as well as talented H-1B workers .
Once again congratulations to Donald Trump who is the originator of this proposal and wish him a great success in the future.
