H-1B Visa Program Re-Introduced with Amended Rules
H-1b visa program which is very popular with Indian skilled workers from the information technology, the latest reformed bill clearly mention that the salary slab for H-1B holder must have a minimum salary of 100,000 USD per annum and also the rules of Master degree exemption is removed. It was announced that this bill with help to curb the abuse of the H-1B visa and  will help to get the brightest of the bright talent from around the world.

This reform in the bill was introduced to eliminate the misuse of the H-1B visa by some companies in America who are hiring cheap work force to replace local American talent. They are trying to ensure that the brightest talent is retained and at the same time the local talent is not left behind and recognised and well compensated. Indian technology companies contended that they are helping the big corporate to become more competitive by handling their requirements with specialized staff and if they need to pay more for them they would rather handle it from India which is less expensive market. 

American companies like Microsoft addressed the issue that this reform my hit their ability to hire the required staff to handle the research and development in the information technology and that their company believe in skilled-immigration system for law-abiding young talent. Facebook  is the first company which hit out against the government decision to crackdown on certain Muslim majority countries.
