HR2131- Greencard for Stem graduate- dead on arrival?
Increase in the H-1B cap from 65,000 to 155,000.Which can never pass due to the long opposition of increasing any extra visas in a time when global economy is unstable. A huge opposition will be seen for the same.
55,000 more green cards for Masters and Doctorates in STEM fields from US universities- Not good as any increase in Greencard will never make it through and that too only specific to one field is surely be opposed by all other fields of occupation.
40,000 additional H-1B numbers for those earning STEM graduate degrees in the United States- Well No extra visa numbers will be approved in this unstable economy
Dual intent for F-1 students of STEM graduates- A big opposition from other field of education , we have doctors, researchers and other occupation which will surely oppose the same.
Employers to pay higher wages for OPT work authorization-Surely in this competitive job market employers will not be happy and hence oppose the rule.
