H-1B Workers: Misunderstandings and Corrections
Zachary S. Johnson, Ph.D.
Abstract: For many, the topic of legal work-based immigration leads to concerns about low-skilled workers who take U.S. jobs based on a lottery. Relatedly, rejection rates for H-1Bs have quintupled in the last four years. This paper discusses some of these concerns and the misperceptions surrounding them. It also provides suggestions to help ameliorate some of these issues as they relate to H-1B petitions.
