This isn’t just about blue collar labor + day laborers. This would have a drastic effect on talent and diversity in advertising and other industries. Trump has no idea how important foreign labor is. https://www.bostonglobe.com/news/nation/2020/04/20/trump-says-will-suspend-immigration-over-virus-concerns/VFg3xBtttoPrFZYpYj5GbN/story.html

Sen. Durbin says he is worried that reviewing 3 provisions passed by House will inundate Parliamentarian. Not sure why they hate EB green card applicants so much. While I understand the lots of opposition to S386 from ROW even though there was no harm provisions, deafening silence from them on showing any solidarity now is just sad.

Currently I’m on H1B and a SA1b at PwC, EY is offering me SA3. At present, PwC just started my GC process and it’s been only 4-5 months in the initial Perm application. I’m not sure whether EY would start my GC process from Day1 if I join their organization. One of the recruiters from EY mentioned that they don’t start GC process unless I have 2 years left on H1B expiry. I have currently 4 more years left (1+3). Should I consider going to EY or stay in PwC? Open for thoughts to tackle this. TIA!PwC EY
Hello there! Presently on EB2 and of Indian nationality with Priority date in Aug 2016. Since I am a people manager and we have an office in Toronto, we were looking into getting a PR in Canada and having me work there for a year before coming back to the US on a L1A visa. Thus shortening my GC wait time. However with the recent EB3 retrogression, they are looking into possibly downgrading me to EB3 instead. Which route (L1A or EB3) would be quicker and dependable? How to convince them? Thanks!

Received an offer to join Facebook as a data scientist. Given the litigation (that just ended) with the PERM issues, is it worth accepting the offer? In 5th year of H1B, approved PERM and i140 with current employer. Priority date in March 2020. Can anyone share any insight/advice?

Suppose there are two classes - one at a state school and one at an Ivy league school. The class at the state school is taught by a professor who went to all Ivy League schools (undergrad/masters/PhD etc) The class at the Ivy League school is taught by a professor who went to all state schools (same as above). With respect to this class only, who gets the better education; the kid at the state or Ivy League school?

FTM - I’m just curious on how some of your maternity leave is set up. I received short term disability pay for 6 weeks and then paid from my job for 6 - they offered additional bonding time, but unpaid. The paid portion came from my “sick time.” I wasn’t sick, I was caring for and bonding with my son. That’s been bothering me since I returned. Now I don’t have any sick leave and any last minute time that I need to take is unpaid. Other countries give moms the entire year, 100% paid 🥴
Is anyone else teaching from a trailer this year? They are building a bigger school, so I hope to have a regular classroom next year.
