​Report suggests US paranoia about H-1Bs largely unsupported by facts or stats | ZDNet
It's a myth that Indian IT outsourcing firms are threatening Americans' jobs.

"While the threat of job loss has long been exaggerated by critics, it reaches illogical proportions when discussing fewer than 10,000 workers in an economy that employs 160 million workers nationwide

more US workers are being hired over the past few years by Indian IT in the US than ever before

the report suggests that the figures cited by the Trump Administration -- that around 80 percent of H-1Bs are paid less than the median wage in their fields -- is seriously flawed"

[[Finally, the bottom line is that in this volatile and rapidly shifting technological landscape, most economists think that if the US government is going to restrict immigration, specifically visas like H-1Bs, companies will simply pick up and move to a part of the world where they are able to access the kind of labour they desperately need.

This is why Canada is home to a growing number of large and small American tech companies, and why India is now home to a growing number of large datacentres and AI labs started by the likes of Cisco, Microsoft, and GE.

"If you're worried about outsourcing, you should probably have a more liberal rather than a less liberal attitude toward immigration," George Mason University economist Tyler Cowen said.]]
