This is a new bill that would increase the minimum wage of H1-B Visas to $130,000, which is more than double the current standard. It is thinly veiled as a 'workers protection' act, with some people claiming companies underpay their workers on these visas.
But make no mistake, this is another attempt at removing immigrants from our country. 70% of H1-B visas are from India, and as soon as this news came out, the biggest tech firms in India basically saw their stock crumble to nothing (on the Bombay Stock Exchange). Many of these workers have been here for years, decades even, and have families that have grown up and identify as American. Our fascist, racist government will not stop their persecution unless we force them to stop.
