15 H-1B Companies BUSTED or "Disqualified"



Breaking News


All 50 States -- As the swelling numbers of unemployed and underemployed Americans see no end in sight, LWOH has learned today  about a list of 15 TOKEN companies that have been disqualified from applying for H-1B worker visas.  Although the list includes companies you may not recognize (hint - very small)  most of them appear to have something to do with IT and engineering. But wait - there is even a pool company on the list!

Recall that the intended purpose of the H-1B visa created twenty years ago was to recruit foreign "skilled" workers for highly paid jobs American companies claimed they could not find local professionals to fill. The article doesn't provide specific reasons why each company was "disqualified," but does offer the following slant, complete with a click through list of the disqualified companies:

"2009 was one of the most controversial years for H-1B visas. For the first time ever, nearly 20,000 H-1B visas went a begging even seven weeks after the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) started accepting applications for the financial year 2010.

With H-1B visas facing blame for the spiralling job losses in the US, the year saw numerous Bills being introduced for restricting the use of H-1B visas through legislation. This made US Department of Labor (DOL) and other US Immigration agencies tougher in approving H-1B visa applications.

Among all the brouhaha, many companies were also disqualified from applying for H-1B visas. A company faces debarment over what is seen as an H-1B abuse under US laws. The penalty of debarment means that a company is disqualified from obtaining approvals of employment-based, permanent and temporary petitions. This disqualification includes all H-1B, L-1, O-1, and P non-immigrant petitions, as well as all I-140 immigrant petitions, as part of the permanent residence process.

Here's over to the top 15 companies disqualified (starting November 30 2009)."


"Brouhaha"? Oh, the delusional arrogance that third world countries which think we are their job piggy bank bitch  weave...Anyway, their token,  puny list is a start - yet imagine if every U.S. company followed suit, what a dent that would make to America's winding unemployment line? To be sure, this news will be news when all of our corporations shun this cheap labor junkie.  If India had a growing unemployment crisis, would it keep importing workers from China? HA!

Why would a country keep importing workers when their country is in a depression, except America?

H-1B as a remedy for labor shortages and as a means of hiring "the best and the brightest" from around the world (which I

strongly support), the vast majority are ordinary people doing ordinary work. Instead of being about talent, H-1B is about cheap labor.

H-1B visa holders may only work for sponsoring employers after approval by the Departments of Labor and Homeland Security.

Although most of the non-compliant H-1B workers had posted wages from employers in fields associated with technical or

specialty occupations, the report noted that one H-1B worker had earnings from a restaurant and janitorial service.

Mukesh,

"H-1B as a remedy for labor shortages and as a means of hiring "the best and the brightest" from around the world (which I strongly support), the vast majority are ordinary people doing ordinary work. Instead of being about talent, H-1B is about cheap labor."

You must be right.

It would have to be absolutely unfathomable to think that U.S.corporations and legislators said the H-1b visa program was created to solve a talent shortage when it is about "cheap labor" instead. Downright unfathomable...to even think that our thought leaders could possibly be liars and cheap weasels!

Unfathomable.
