I just don’t get it why they always only think that foreigners are “stealing” the jobs. We are living/investing/spending here, which creates a lot of jobs. Not to say we pay tax too.

We end up paying social security and Medicare although most of us are not going to get these benefits in our lifetime since we won’t become citizens here. We buys houses, cars and are income wise the strongest community in US. We travel all over US and spend so much money here. Also most of us have invested our money in stocks in US. Dunno why anyone would complain about having qualified people working here. #MAGA

Lots of openings, not a lot of qualified people. High demand, low supply. I’d say they go up. Or the quality of people will shift down. 🤷‍♂️ either way I’m about to get fast tracked

The US doesn’t have enough people to properly fill these roles, so it will lead to more jobs being offshored. I imagine it will accelerate the flattening of this market.

More jobs for US consultants, woot, woot.

Most pure (non technical) consulting roles cannot or will not be outsourced. If the H1B holders are in those positions, more jobs should open up. If those H1Bs are technical, they'll likely just offshore more.

Make America Great Again

Dont worry OP, when it comes to that your concern would be the least of your worries.

The number of H1Bs working for the firms represented on this thread is miniscule compared to the total H1B pool, or the size of the “pure/non offshorable” consulting market. Therefore, minimal. Sorry OP
