If ACN or any other company here is hiring workers that do not meet the criterion for h1-b, exceptional talent at American salaries that are not found in america, then one should take it up with the company. Those of us that fit that criteria should not get lumped in to ACN1's view of "quality of coworkers". I, for one, would never hire or want to work with someone like ACN1 because their racist viewpoint doesn't meet my minimum requirement for coworkers which is basic humanity.

@k1 I agree Canada has tougher, if not better, immigration laws. I always found that to be interesting, why we never got on their level. They approach their temp work visa process like we do our perm residency process so there's more scrutiny. Look no one is saying we don't have to make our immigration laws stronger, but when A1 tries to relate race/residency status to quality, I have to call it out. Still not sure where A1 was going with the "not racist but..." bit

Question is: what will effect on consulting industry be?

US companies have hq abroad due to tax reasons, not to recruit talent. If the corporate tax rate actually drops to 15%, it would be in the corporations best interest, due to taxes, to move back to the US.

So no change for H1B, Green Card holders. Good to know.

H1B visa stamped.

While applying for visa my company quoted 80K as compensation. Now they want to reduce it to 75K.

This feels like unfair practice. Is it common? What should be my approach?

Were you asked for original degree and transcript for H1B visa interview? I don't have them with me but can take printouts of scans.

Moved from one office location to another and changed teams too, so had to file an H1B amendment for it. Got RFE today 😞. Anyone who has survived RFE?
