Help me to set Wikipedia straight about the #h1b

What a load of horse crap.

Reliability of the U.S. economy on high-skilled employees[edit]

Between 1996 and 2000 foreign-born workers constituted nearly half of the net increase in the U.S. labor force. Without highly skilled workers and diverse ideas the Unites States can lose its status of being the largest country for business services. Economic growth of the country is visible via economic growth of different countries. For example, United States, Australia, and Singapore have an open inflow of foreign talent and the economy of these countries is booming comparing to Germany, Korea, and Russia.

H-1B visa status[edit]

If a student is planning to stay within the country for more than 12 months, they require an extended visa, a H-1B visa. An employer has to sponsor the employee, which leads to international students causing more paperwork and cost on the employer. During Optional Practical Training (OPT) international students can receive a job offer from a sponsoring company, but for some companies’ reject visa dependency. Many international students leave the United States because of unfriendly immigration laws. Each April employers apply for H-1B visas for their employees which will allow them to continue working in the country. In 2015, on the 7th of April, U.S. Citizens and Immigration Services stopped accepting applications when they received 172,500 requests the first week.[2]

Innovation and job creation in the U.S.[edit]

•In 2008 a study was conducted by Harvard University proving that foreigners who have a doctorate comprise around half of all scientists and engineers in the United States.

•H-1B visas play an important role in innovation growth of the United States. It is a fact that numbers of inventions measured by patents increase when number of H-1B visas rise.[3]

•The shortage of H-1B and green-card limitations in 2003-2007, foreign graduates could contribute to the Gross Domestic Product by $13.6 billion in 2008, and even more in taxes.[4]

•The National Foundation for American Policy (NFAP), found that there is a positive relationship between the number of H-1B positions requested by employees and the total percentage change in the total employment one year later.[5]

•Bill Gates claimed in 2008 that “Microsoft has found that for every H-1B we hire, we add on average four additional employees to support them in various capacities.”[6]

•For every H-1B position requested, US technology companies increase their employment by 5 workers meaning that U.S. labor market have an increased demand for highly skilled foreign workers.

H-1B workers and labor force[edit]

The U.S. department of Labor ensures that H-1B workers do not displace or adversely affect wages or working conditions of U.S. workers. They file the Labor Condition Application, in which the employer ensures that the firm will pay the nonimmigrant more than actual compensation paid other employees in the same job or the prevailing compensation for that occupation; the firm will provide working conditions for the nonimmigrant that do not affect other employees; and that there is no applicable strike or lockout.

The Displaced American would respectfully state that he and millions of others have been displaced because of the mass importation of non-immigrant guest workers.

As an example, I need to come up with $625.00 today to make my land payment.

The only thing I have on that land is my kitchen that you can see in the following picture, and folks, in 2002 I was making $12,000 per month.

So you tell me, are we really doing anything good for the economy of the American people?

Or is it all going to India?

Texas Workforce Commission says there are NO Displaced Americans, Get a job….

Like most people, they can’t seem to comprehend that we can’t get a job unless somebody interviews us.

And since they have NEVER made the money we did as software developers, they can’t comprehend that people consider us overqualified, so they won’t interview us because we won’t stay when times get better.

So they throw us into the river to see if we sink, or swim

After all, even though we have paid unemployment all of our lives, that is not up to them unless we worked enough hours in the last year,

The fact that we have been unemployed for the previous five years is not something they can’t comprehend.

Detroit-Area Home Health Care Agency Owner Sentenced to 30 Years in Prison for $33 Million Medicare Fraud Scheme

The owner of several Detroit home health care companies was sentenced today to 360 months in prison for his role in a Medicare fraud scheme that caused approximately $33 million in losses.

Assistant Attorney General Leslie R. Caldwell of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division, U.S. Attorney Barbara L. McQuade of the Eastern District of Michigan, Special Agent in Charge David P. Gelios of the FBI’s Detroit Division and Special Agent in Charge Lamont Pugh III of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services-Office of Inspector General (HHS-OIG) Chicago Regional Office made the announcement.

Zafar Mehmood, 50, of Ypsilanti, Michigan, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Judith E. Levy of the Eastern District of Michigan, who also ordered Mehmood to pay $40,488,106.98 in restitution.  Forfeiture will be determined at a hearing on Nov. 7, 2016.  On July 27, 2015, Mehmood was convicted of one count of conspiracy to commit health care fraud, four counts of health care fraud, one count of conspiracy to pay and receive health care kickbacks, one count of conspiracy to commit money laundering, two counts of money laundering and two counts of obstruction of justice.

According to evidence presented at trial, from 2006 through 2011, Mehmood participated in a scheme in which he obtained patients by paying cash kickbacks to recruiters, who in turn paid cash to patients to induce them to sign up for home health care with Mehmood’s companies: Access Care Home Care Inc., Patient Care Home Care Inc., Hands On Healing Home Care Inc. and All State Home Care Inc.  The evidence also showed that he paid kickbacks to physicians to refer patients to the companies for unnecessary home health care services.

In addition, trial evidence showed that Mehmood and his co-conspirators falsified records to make it appear as if the patients qualified for and received the services for which Medicare paid over $33 million during the course of the conspiracy.  Mehmood used a co-conspirator to launder the proceeds of the fraud through shell companies under Mehmood’s control, according to trial evidence.

Trial evidence also demonstrated that while visiting an HHS-OIG facility during pretrial release to review evidence with his attorney, Mehmood stole incriminating documents that law enforcement authorities had seized during the execution of search warrants at Mehmood’s companies.  Law enforcement agents subsequently recovered the missing documents in a search of Mehmood’s jail cell.

A co-defendant, Badar Ahmadani, was also convicted at trial of one count of conspiracy to commit health care fraud and one count of conspiracy to pay and receive health care kickbacks.  Ahmadani is scheduled to be sentenced on Nov. 7, 2016.

The FBI and HHS-OIG investigated the case, which was brought as part of the Medicare Fraud Strike Force, supervised by the Criminal Division’s Fraud Section and the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Michigan.  Fraud Section Trial Attorneys Niall M. O’Donnell and A. Brendan Stewart prosecuted the case.

Since its inception in March 2007, the Medicare Fraud Strike Force, now operating in nine cities across the country, has charged nearly 2,900 defendants who have collectively billed the Medicare program for more than $10 billion.  In addition, the HHS Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, working in conjunction with the HHS-OIG, are taking steps to increase accountability and decrease the presence of fraudulent providers.

Will you help me run about a 3 full page ad exposing what rackspace is doing?

These 60 or so applications are for Fiscal Year 2016 H-1B’s.

Each job that they take is one less job for Americans in America.

I believe this is wrong and I want to print the complete list with all of the information that is in that list.

Americans have families to provide for, and this is America, not India or China.

I have the skills they are looking for.

So does Art.

And hundreds of thousands of other damned fine Americans.

But they won’t consider us as it is cheaper and more profitable to hire non-immigrant guest workers who will work ungodly hours for what turns out to be very little money when you divide the salary by the hours.

If you will help me to do this, I promise we will find a way to do the same to usaa as they are doing much worse when you look at the ads their American clients have done for them not realizing that they are not hire vets, or Americans.

I worked at USAA for 2 years.  Part of their service desk.  When I got there, the service desk was being run by Kforce,  Kforce got fired, another company came in.  That company?  The infamous HCL.  Not only was management all Indians, but they cheated and abused the law.  We didn’t paid 1.5x overtime, they labeled us as “Flexible work hours” employees and paid us on a sliding 0.5x OT.  When that got too dangerous as lawyers started making inquiries they quit paying us OT on our paychecks an started handing out $10 an hour gift cards.
That’s IF you worked OT at their request.
It get’s better.
My group was the internal service desk, we did software fix for employees.  HCL paid us salaried, but wanted to move us to hourly.  They couldn’t.  So instead of hiring under that contract with USAA that forced the salaries, they subcontracted for nearly 40% LESS Pay to do the same job.
It get’s better.
The internal HARDWARE teams, that installed and maintained employees PC’s?  All were USAA Employees.  Were, I say because HCL came in, took over that desk and forced all the USAA Employees to convert to the HCL or quit.  Less pay, less benefits.
It get’s better.
Most of USAA’s IT Programming and support?  Chennai India.  If you come to San Antonio, take a walk along Fredricksburg road.  Guess what?  Little India, all USAA workers.
It get’s better.
HCL is contracted to say pay each of these H1B Visa employees say.. 45k a year, but they only get 25K, and are told if they say anything, they’ll lose their visa’s.
HCL Management pockets the difference.
USAA knows about this, they don’t care.
The ALL AMERICAN, Pro-US MILITARY, VETERAN (Of which I am) FInancial and Insurance agency… is a major employer of not Veterans, or Americans…
