When places like Bloomberg see through the scam, we are beginning to get somewhere.
But these applications don’t tell the whole story of how Cisco planned to use the controversial visa program to supplement its workforce. The visa requests it submitted accounted for only 40 percent of the applications from 2016 for temporary visas for jobs to be located at its headquarters. The rest were submitted by IT firms, mostly from India, seeking to place workers with the company — about 250 companies in total. The only indications that Cisco had anything to do with these applications were the addresses listed as the place of employment— a piece of data that’s not included in the aggregated statistics on H-1B applications released by the Department of Labor. Silicon Valley companies don’t mention workers employed by contractors, also known as the contingent workforce, when discussing how they use the program, meaning the picture they give is incomplete.
Problem is, I only have data at the city level.
As an example, if they included the street address, I could see exactly which companies are supplying H-1B workers at USAA in San Antonio.
After all, if they are not hiding anything, why should it matter if I produce a report showing exactly how many H-1B workers are working at that specific address?
If you value your son or daughter having a bright future where they can work at our best paying jobs, you really need to think about that.
