Economic Times: Study Finds H-1B Visa Holders Create Jobs, Not Take Them Away

posted by Randall

Money headline in Wall Street JournalA study by the US think tank, the National Foundation for American Policy, found that for each 100 H-1B visa holders hired, 183 jobs for US citizens are created, reports the Economic Times.

The findings run contrary to fears by some American lawmakers who say the hiring of H-1B workers from India take away jobs from Americans.

NFAP also found that in 2012  H-1B visa workers hired by the top 25  India based companies  equaled just 0.017 percent of the entire US labor force.

“Research indicates measures to restrict the use of H-1B visas are not based on sound evidence and would represent a serious policy mistake that would shift more work and resources outside the United States,” said the report’s author Stuart Anderson, NFAP’s executive director.
