U.S. Visa Resources
We are getting a lot of conflicting numbers these days regarding the visa issue for working in the United States. The numbers presents below for FY 2007 come directly from the source (assuming, of course, that you have faith in government-supplied figures). Emotions are mixed on whether whether permitting a large number of temporary work and educational visas is a good idea because, according to some, it displaces American workers and compresses wages. Maybe it is because I have not been directly impacted, but I think bringing high tech talent into the country is a good thing unless the privilege is abused (which I'm sure it is to some extent). Keeping a close watch on those who are granted permission to enter is an absolute necessity, though, due to national security issues.|
