Immigrant work Visa's!!! (in Debates)


Kefeck [Demonic Serenity] October 9 2011 12:01 PM EDT

Just curious how you guys feel about "Immigrants" coming into the U.S on 9 month work visas -.- .

I don't really have a problem with it so long as the business owners are following the labor laws. Which everywhere in the U.S right now they are not.

Long story short I almost lost my job because I didn't want to work 7 days a week, at less then minimum wage. My location right now is the only reason I still have a job.

let's just say I'm living in a town far from Mexico with a rather small Mexican population....

*Sighs*

Just wondring, what do you do and where are the immigrants comming from?

For the record, I'm not against it in general, but any responsible American company should be hiring Americans first, especially in this ecconomy with the current unemployment rate.

Big companies don't do responsibiliyt, they want cheap laber, and illegals/immigrants work cheap

I am fine with immigrants coming here and working in the US on a work visa.

Your complaint is not about the Immigrant coming here legally, but about how the company goes about it. You should be able to file a complaint to the USCIS about this and have them investigated.

During this time right now when the economy is tough and unemployment as high as it is, we need to really limit the number of work visas until a later time.

I'm really really tired of seeing laws and things put into place that make illegals come before Americans.

Or people that turn a blind eye and/or encourage it.

What is the current criteria for whether or not someone is awarded a visa?

Main one:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H-1B_visa
Seasonal (non-agriculture)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H-2B_visa


That's the basics.. incidentally in 2009 there were 214k H-1B visas issued (or extended)... that is somewhere below 0.25% of the workforce in America.
