How will the new H1B bill affect consulting? Will everyone making less than 100,000 on H1B be fired if the bill passes?

What are illegal h1s ey1.politicians are more concerned with optics than facts, and therefore it is likely this will go through, but won't change a thing for the American workers they claim to support.h1bs are a soft target,not a voting block, no backing from liberal/conservative groups,and demographically are usually from groups that are still essentially tiny minorities


No KPMG1. I actually escaped the h-1 lottery (you were assessed on your credentials when I applied), and then Barack expedited my green card. So, I've already won the visa wars. I strongly feel that international undergrads are the smartest people in the U.S., because they are usually the top high school students in their home country. It's good to get a Masters and I am planning on an MBA. But Masters programs are getting expensive, and if you have a smart undergrad, say in CS, then it's smarter to keep them without salary restrictions.

The reporting on this issue is terrible. You guys will probably be more helpful: What is the masters' quota and why does it matter if we get rid of it?


Okay, I just read a couple articles about the bill. Yep, all Associates and some SAs on H1s will be screwed if this becomes law.


Surprised to see 100K as the average American salary for these positions. Seriously? Though it's just a bill at this point, it's somewhat ludicrous.


The average salary is bad .am@oretty sure Americans don't earn 100k for those positions as well .but as an h1 am a strong supporter of taking away those illegal h1s including ones they get with the masters degree


Basically what I'm asking EY1 is, how is deporting me going to help us stop these people that embellish their resumes and abuse the H1 program?


Oh P1, losing the war and the fight I see.


And no I don't think people earning less than 100 will be fired .most companies pay 85-90k on an average.the companies will come crashing down

No new rules yet kpmg1. Only once trump comes into office

What if you're already on h1b? Will they revoke your visa if you make >100k?

Reintroduced bill, it didn't have much support when it was first introduced.

Looks like the full bill is really short since it's an amendment https://www.congress.gov/bill/114th-congress/house-bill/5801/text?format=txt

Do you think it would be 100k for lower cost cities ? Cause then everyone would need to be fired 😒

Is that 100k base? Or total compensation including benefits?

Do people@on visa really get paid lesser than Americans ? We all get comparable salaries at big four am sure

Don't understand why they are taking out Master's quota

The rule proposes to ammend "exemptions" for an h1b dependent employer (>15% on h1b). Current exemptions are at 60k or a masters.

Click on the link AC1, it says incl cash bonuses

Funnily enough the only strong supporters of this on my team are H1 or former H1 managers and above

Not really pwc2, this bill only applies to h1b dependent employers. That said, it does add a lot of overhead, and the idea seems to be to make it harder for h1bs and their employers

Aren't most firms who employ h1s h1b dependent employers ? @d1
