Have H-1B's impacted your career?

By great.plains.pgm ·
I would like to know how the 163,000 H-1B's have impacted your career this year and if you think they should stay, or go home. Do you feel they impacted your job security? Do you think they impacted your rates? Do you think the H-1B cap should be raised or lowered?

Have H-1B's impacted your career? YES

I would like to know how the 163,000 H-1B's have impacted your career this year and if you think they should stay, or go home. During a reduction-in-force (RIF; aka Lay-off) was requested to train my replacement (an H-1B). Currently they are only needed by corporations to lower cost. In the eyes of unemployed IT Professionals, they should go home.

Do you feel they impacted your job security? YES

Do you think they impacted your rates? YES

Do youthink the H-1B cap should be raised or lowered? Should be eliminated for now and only re-instated when a job goes unfilled for more than a year. Re-instatement should have the same specific requirements for the job. Meaning if the job requirements change, the year begins again. H-1B?s should be capped at 2% of the unemployed work force.
