Latest H-1B News

I try and put all of the H-1B news that I can find on this page so that you can read in one session the latest news, kind of like a newspaper – If you think your articles should be here and you have a RSS feed, send it to me and I will make it happen as it is going to take all of us working together to beat these sorry bastards that are putting us out of work and leaving us nowhere to turn except suicide.

I have started working again on exposing the H-1B Data at H-1B Hunting Licenses.

Many say that the H-1B is NOT paid less than the American that they have replaced, but when you look at the data you quickly realize what they are being offered in wages IF they get it as many of the vultures will not pay what they say they will on the LCA Application.

Click here to see what they are being paid for Fiscal Year 2016.

To quickly see what type of jobs these H-1B Hunting Licenses are being purchased for, you can click here.

I will be adding the Fiscal Year 2017 data soon, so stay tuned.
