Is This An H1-B Scam?

-- by Dave Johnson

Programmers Guild: Gary Scholten, CIO at Principal Financial Group Inc., pays H-1b programmers $43,000 while lobbying for more,

Approved H-1B applications: 110 Total jobs: 168

Principal's H-1b usage includes many software development positions paying between $43k - $50k.

So you know, these jobs usually pay much better. Except that lots of American's are having more and more trouble finding them. ESPECIALLY when they pass age 40 or so. But companies are complaining that they can't fill these jobs as an excuse to bring in more and more low-paid workers from other countries on "H1-B" visas.

Read the whole story for the details of how it works.
