There won't be much impact on h1b bankers. If the bill passes, $130k min salary will only apply to h1b dependent companies

They making the same mistake as the min wage people... just a new number isn't enough, you need to peg it to an index so the problem corrects itself every year. With this, we will be back in 10 years discussing new minimums as 130k 2027 <<< 130k 2017

I read that the 130k number is calculated based on 90% percentile wage so that would take care of inflation.

As long as it's worded as 90 percentile wage and not 130k . Btw, does 130k put you in the 90th percentile nationally ? Thought it would be much higher

I guess this does not affect those who currently already hold H1B status?

Only h1b dependent employers I.e. 15+ % people on h1

I quit my second job last week. I was working in an environment that was more toxic than my agency job. Now the owner of the business wants me to call him and I’m not too sure what more to say. I was fairly honest with the manager and wrote an email just explaining I wasn’t happy there. It may just be my anxiety but i would rather talk in person if I were to have a convo with the owner. Has anyone else worked part time for a small biz? I know times are tough but I wasn’t even that valuable there
