U.S. Job Losses Not Due to H-1B Visas, Report Says

New H-1B visa holders don’t make much of a dent in the U.S. workforce, according to a report by the National Foundation for American Policy.

US lawmakers may be busy putting restrictions on the country’s primary temporary work visa, H-1B, but new H-1B visaholders each year represent just seven in 10,000 civilian workers in the US, according to a report by an American public policy organisation.

As per the report by the National Foundation for American Policy (NFAP), 107,686 new H-1B petitions were approved by the US Citizenship and Immigration Services in 2008, including those exempt from being included in the H1-B quota of 85,000 visas annually. In comparison, the American civilian labour force stood at 154.6 million in 2008.

One Response to U.S. Job Losses Not Due to H-1B Visas, Report Says

  1. Laid off American Worker says:

    Why do these firms in India continue to publish this propaganda? These claims are false. Potential guest workers, here’s the truth

    YOU ARE TAKING JOBS AWAY FROM QUALIFIED AMERICANS.

    Thousands of qualified American citizens like me have been laid off and their jobs aare being replaced by offshore workers. Qualified American citizens loose their jobs, their homes, their health insurance.

    Certainly India would not do this to Indian citizens.

    People are angry about the abuse of guest worker laws. We expect that the bill introduced by Senators Grassley and Durbin to clean up visa fraud and abuse will be passed quickly.

    THINK TWICE ABOUT WORKING IN THE UNITED STATES UNTIL THE ECONOMY RECOVERS. YOU WILL BE MORE WELCOME AT SOME TIME IN THE FUTURE.

    Thank you
    I speak the truth
