DHS Report: H-1B visa holders are paid far below-average wages


IT Firms Outsourcing Jobs Pay Below-Average Wages, DHS Data Show

Information technology (IT) firms that outsource American jobs to foreign workers through the H-1B visa continue to pay below-average wages, new Department of Homeland Security (DHS) data show.

Every year, more than 100,000 foreign workers are brought to the U.S. on the H-1B visa.
