Thought only illegal immigrants needed to be worried. Hundreds of thousands of legal immigrant lives will be disrupted with this.

http://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/news/2017/01/30/trump-targets-techs-h1b-visa-hiring-tool/97240588/

That's the proposal not official yet..

Already have my H1. Be hopeful that Trump cannot do this unilaterally. These things have to go through congress and there are some logical senators left. Also congress is heavily lobbied by tech and wall street. So they won't take random decisions that easily. Again, its just an optimistic message because in this climate, we could all be dead tomorrow. Who knows what could happen? 🙄

Now it's 130 k

What are the options?

Home I guess

D2- source for your 130k ?

Just google H1b you will get about 20 news results on the new bill

Wtf!!!

Relax. $130K is for H1-B dependent employers. Which is a much needed move to weed out staffing firms that exploit the visa, run up the number of applicants every year, reduce your probability of getting one with real/legit jobs. It's for your benefit.

@E2 can you shed more light on H-1B dependent firms? The big 4 don't count ?

D1: check your LCA documentation - one of the responses to a question there indicates whether your firm is H1-B dependent or not. It's highly unlikely that Deloitte is H1-B dependent. EY is not.

Has this group received written or a verbal confirmation that your company will sponsor your pathway to green card? If so, how long after you started did they start the process? I understand the green card process can be lengthy.

Appreciate any insights.

I am sure I am not the first one asking this question on this forum. I moved from Deloitte US to Deloitte Canada a few months ago due to visa issues. I want to move back to the US. I have a very strong and supportive network in the US. How easy is it to get L1A if I spend a year in Canada? How soon can I get a GC if I move back on L1A? Anything else to keep in mind?

Moved to the city about 6 months ago and I’ve been disappointed in my experience. I know the pandemic is playing a factor but I didn’t expect the winter days as gloomy as they’ve been. For those who have lived here for a while, is this normally what the winters are like? What do you do to keep things interesting when you can’t go outside? Last two months have made me consider moving but part of me feels like I won’t have given the city a fair shot
