Of particular interest to the tech industry, the new bill would raise the current base cap on H-1B visas from 65,000 to 110,000 a year. However, as many as 180,000 visas could be made available based on industry demand and employment opportunities for certain tech-related skills.
The cap on additional H-1B visas made available to foreigners holding advanced degrees in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, or STEM, fields, also has been raised, from 20,000 to 25,000.
Really? REALLY? We need to drive wages down even further? NO THANKS.
