We have the new data for 2008 on H-1B. Computer World has published a searchable list of the top users of H-1B guest worker Visas.
Microsoft Corp. was the top U.S.-based recipient of H-1B visas in 2008, receiving approval for 1,037 visas, slightly more than in 2007. But the largest users of the program remain the major Indian offshore IT services firms -- and their use of H-1Bs appears to be increasing, according to government data.
The importance of the H-1B visa program to India-based outsourcers is clear from the fiscal 2008 approval list compiled by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS). That fiscal year ended Sept. 30.
They have a searchable list.
Note how many of our universities are using these. So much for supporting the nation, U.S. workers, even when receiving billions in federal and state funds!
Note also public schools. Who believes anywhere we have a shortage of teachers in this country or the talent and resources to teach our children?
Notice Satyam who has the level of fraud bigger than Enron is third.
Bear in mind this doesn't completely show who are the worst culprits for labor arbitraging U.S. citizens for companies like IBM just offshore outsource directly. Why? Uh, it's a little cheaper.
