Topic: IV Call today Dec 17th

Hi folks,
what you feel about IV call from today. I strongly feel that they are right that govt is looking to scrap h1b beyond 6 years.
Shouldnt we all should help IV on HR 392, rather than just debate on trackitt on Indian meritocracy.

Topic: H4 EAD Renewal


If it is renewal you need to specify the previous USCIS service center details that has accepted the application!


Thanks for the response, but a friend told me unless you are applying for similar category , you should select 'No'.
I doubt it as it doesnot make sense.
Just want to ensure if you applied for H4 EAD renewal or know someone who renewed it with selecting 'Yes' and providing center information in I-765 form?

Topic: H4 EAD Renewal

Hi Friends,

I am applying for H4 EAD renewal and so had few clarifications on I-765 form.
My spouse is on H4 EAD currently.
so in Form I-765, under sec 11, it specifies
"Have you ever applied for employment authorization from USCIS" Yes/No.
First time we filled it no. This time should it be still No or Yes and my spouse already has an H4 EAD?

thanks for the help.

Topic: Breaking News!!! CTS to stop filing H1 Extensions


correct. Also, Indian outsourcing companies are known for bloating employee's experience. They hire fresh graduates, train them for 6 months. Make them start listening to client meetings. After an year, they join the team as developer and within 2 years are promoted to Architect. They then are sent onsite, as a Sr Architect, which bubbles up their billing rate. The employee still gets paid peanuts!


Hey you missed adding one point here. After 3-4 years on handling projects they make them CEOs. ROFL LOL

Topic: H1b extension processing time - Vermont


Hi,
This is what my company's legal team said when I asked about upgrading to premium.

We are recommending against upgrading to premium processing unless there’s an urgent matter. USCIS is receiving an over whelming number of request and this have been resulting in them issuing RFE (Requests for Evidence) for cases being upgraded.

My case details can be found in a few posts above your post..


I can only suggest that this assumption depends on case to case basis. so far I have seen 4-5 cases whom premium upgrade didnt resulted in any RFE, and infact approval happened within 2 weeks. So just dont fall for this argument, if your case is strong with all documents required.

They have stopped offshore travel and only recruiting from onsite.
Here, if client is ready to give billing for a resource, what problem company will have?
This thread is all scaremongering and nonsense.

Topic: H1b extension processing time - Vermont

Thanks. first of all I posted this in Vermont thread, although my petition was filed in Nebraska center.
Degree and its major: B.Tech Computer Science from one of top NITs
Years of experience: 11
Work model (full time, EV, EVC ...): EV model (Big desi consultancy)

Another question is that I haven't yet received H4 receipt notice so far. Seems like USCIS these days directly send it to home address given. Hopefully that should be approved too, as I am hearing delays in H4 approvals.

Topic: H1b extension processing time - Vermont

Hi Friends,

recently my extension was filed in premium processing and today I saw its approved. Status says "Case Was Approved And My Decision Was Emailed".
Now this is really strange as my petition was received only 3 days back.
Just wanted to check if this is normal or its just some error in status.
Details of my case:
Computer Systems Analyst
LCA filed: Wage level 3
Actual wage qualifies just for level 4

Topic: H1B denied. Planning to refile. Please advise


Only for Facebook they increased the H1B dependent employer from 15% to 20%


I agree completely. Otherwise why they just raised 5%. apart from FB noone else benefits from this 5% increase.
Those who think FB, MS supports their per country quota removal, should open their eyes now.

True but the NASSCOM moron seems to be unaffected :) which doesn't matter anymore.

https://economictimes.indiatimes.com/nri/visa-an...


I would disagree slightly.. I think they are right when they say that it should be one bill for all in similar occupation.. Like why to exept some consulting companies who pay less.. exempted ones should be the one from different job codes like those with manufacturing, medicine etc.. But it doesnot matters what me and you think. It wont change anything.

Topic: H.R. 392, Fairness for High Skilled Immigrants Act

Thanks for the info.
But from my little understanding, its senate only where the real game stars. I cant remember but long back I heard from someone (possibly at trackitt only) that there were bills introduced by some staunch h1b haters which passed house, but died in senate. I may be wrong here, as I havent find anything like that in quick google search.
Also, does the lobbyists have major role in senate or in house, or may be both?

Valid inputs.
gcseeker1999, from your replies, I assume you have been here for along time or knowledgeable on many aspects.
Is there any such h1b bill previously introduced which cleared judiciary committee but died further along the way?

Imp question to you all. Does I140 approved employees count in h1 dependent count or they are not?
eg. if a company has 40% employees on h1b, but out of those 40% 30% have I140 approved. Will the company be still flagged as h1b dependent?

Topic: H.R. 392, Fairness for High Skilled Immigrants Act


Ms. Lofgren, is saying Per country quota should be removed which is the main issue here @ 56 mins. it has 300 Co sponsors.



she can say anything but its not in the bill. thats more important.
If you see the complete video, Jaypal who is the Indian leader never ever speaks about HR 392 and doesnot cares to support or add it to the bill. And she gets all her funding by Indians and has a huge indian support. Similarly look at Congresswoman Jackson Lee who is African American was so supportive and debating with other members to include amendment in recruitment process which will benefit African Americans and they agreed.
Cant blame others when we are like this.

he is saying but thats not getting added. Please see the complete video.. Lofgren clearly says that she pitched for removing per country cap, but couldnot get bi partisan support for it. that means people dont want per country cap removal to be added to this bill. we are done now. period.

As far as I know Lofgren said 135K for Some City in California where that figure is wage level 4. She did not say 135K across entire US. She said wage level 4 for all US cities and towns and that number varies as per Oflc. I think HR 170 has more support although nothing certain at this time BUT if this is passed independently then as someone said the GC queue will be reduced by around 30-40 percent. Mostly WITCHs and desi employers will suffer big which they should : by means of karma. Also if they put similar wage restrictions On L1 visa then great. Perhaps that is also being considered in some bill or in this very HR170



My bad. I didnt see the complete video. If you see the complete judiciary hearing on the bill, lofgren specifically says about her bill and says Issa has added as amendment to it to make the wage level to median income (mostly level 3) in the area. Earlier her bill said to add 30% (or may be more) to the median wage. This is why the total was coming to 135 k in most cities.

I am hugely surprised to see that median wage level for a city in Illinois is same as LA area. cost of living in those areas vary a lot. same is the case between charlotte and LA county area.

DUde. 90K min does not mean everyone has to fall in that category. The bill also said 135K or the average median wage in that area for that occupation with a threshold of 90K. So obviously in places like LA or NYc they will approve petitions only if wage level is 3 or above or around 135K. But for towns like Cincinnati or Raleigh etc the wage level 3 could be around 85K and in that case the bill says it still has to be 90K overriding the median wage. . Replace 90K with 100K if the bill says 100 is the threshold


Isn't 135k was on Lofgren bill? This is the issue now that most people will put their amendments to a moving bill.. One bill has to move atmost..

the issue is not only this bill... as u can see in the video of the commitee , chairman said Issa has agreed to add amendments..
so i suspect all other h1b bill holders will jump in and keep adding their own amendments..
thats where the problems will start to appear for all who thinks they have crossed 100k and so are safe..
