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

I am not in IT so DBA/SQL doesn't make any sense. What Norm Matloff claims is that there is no talent shortage. And, H1B's statistically do not outperform natives in any measurable indicator. The big Apple, IBM, etc. love is that the H1B are immobile can be paid at par or lower, and increased supply of talent lowers wages. Dispute that...

Hard to believe, a professor of Comp Sc would not keep up with reality. Well then counter his arguments with data and facts, like it or not, he is influencing policy.

Good emotional argument, but you will have to counter the rational counter arguments, especially an expert such as Norm Matloff (https://normsaysno.wordpress.com/).
His argument, backed up with real data, is that immigration is purely a wage suppression tool.
Then there is the other team which will say, leave if you think it is unfair, there is no implied permanency with a work visa.

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

There is a parallel here to activism by Cesar Chavez's campaigning for a moral cause, against the vested interests of wealthy landlords. You will have to think along these grand lines of a bigger collective bargaining/lobbying campaign, because you will have formidable resistance from entities with very deep pockets.
A few of us in the oil & gas business pooled some money to speak with a DC lobbyist a couple of years ago, but he is one opinion from the cesspool for what is worth.
I am not in the queue, thanks to EB1A; but will be glad to support the right cause financially. Good luck...

We can argue over the semantics of the pejorative term, but the reality is that people in the GC-queue are nothing but immobile resources to the large MNC's. They have a vested interest in keeping you stuck in the waiting period, the longer the better in their perspective. If you know anything about the US, you will NOT trump the interests of these powerful entities. Prepare to wait for a LONG time, and have no hope for someone else to pass this bill. There is no solution because you have no leverage, there are a million more IT-peons waiting for your spot, however onerous you deem it to be.

Large American MNC's that have a vested interest in having immobile talent (aka IT-slaves). This bill has an UPHILL battle if it ever gets to the floor; every lobbyist out there will do their best to kill, thank Apple/Google/Microsoft for their kindness.

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

The point is fairness goes against the interests of the big employers like Google, Apple, IBM, etc. that prefer to have you IT-slaves immobile waiting on green card. If you haven't noticed, this country runs on money not fairness. Good luck with your hope and dreams.

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

As someone unwillingly exposed to the world of political lobbying, you never ask where the money goes - just deal with it. It is essentially a first-world bribe! Have you considered what a balance sheet might look like? Yeah, we spent $400 at a massage parlor for Tom Cotton, and a $600 lunch at the four seasons with another senator. I have no clue about these IV guys though, the question is really - have they had any noticeable effect?
Considering the amount of dark money out there vested against any immigration reform for the IT-slaves, you will have to raise a ton of money to compete against the likes of the large American MNC's that have a vested interest in having immobile talent. Just face the fact, for every IT-slave facing uncertainty in a long wait for the GC, there are a million more waiting for that spot! I don't think there is any option for you folks than to mobilize politically, find the GenX version of Cesar Chavez to fight for your rights.

No one defines your marriage better than the truth; it worked for me since I did not have all the crap. Not everyone likes the grand procession and the wife bling'ed up like some rapper. If you are from AP, feel free to keep the nice payout though...

Topic: When will EB-2 PD of 30 July 2010 be current?

Because everyone profits while EB2 laggards, as many scientists on this forum, you have to query the fundamental mechanism behind the reason for slow movement. Too many EB2's waiting with no spill over. Unless, you see a reason for the fundamentals to change, why would the last 2 years of movement, be different? I think the average scenario is your best bet.
