H-1B Tech Layoffs
This is a very good article in The Washington Post about the problems facing 1000s of H-1B workers who have been laid off recently. Layoffs are difficult for everyone, but for H-1B workers, they can be catastrophic and result in "brain drain" leaving the U.S. to return to foreign countries. Many of these H-1B workers have received their Bachelor's and Master's degrees in the U.S. and have worked here for over 10 years, have Green Card Applications pending (some for more than 10 years), and have U.S. citizen children. It makes no fiscal sense to force these well-educated, tax-paying workers to leave our country. We need better options for H-1B workers who are laid off. Sixty (60) days is not enough time.
