Bill deals with illegal immigration and security issues of border and also includes “killer” provisions on H1-B and L-1 visas. The bill was introduced on October 2, is a replica of the equally harsh Senate bill, passed in the mid of this year. Both bills H1-B and L-1 visas restrict the company not to have more than half of its employees on H1-B or L-1, as the visa fees are more which require on the part of employers or companies to pay much higher wages to their employees and it is necessary that compulsory ads be published so that US workers can be recruited before hiring an H1-B visa holder.
The relief raised by the bills on H1-B visas ranges from 65,000 a year to between 1,15,000 and 1,80,000, as per the need. The company which is using H1-B workers, for them fees of visa could rise to $5,000 on each application if 30-50% of its employees are on H1-B.If the employees is 50-75% on H-1B, then they have to sell out at the price of $10,000 for each visa application. In another situation, i.e. If they are not sufficient, then bills want companies dependency should be reduced on H1-B visas by 2016 down to half of the employees.
