US Think-Tank Report - H-1B Visa Holders are Underpaid and abused
After a tweet by Donald Trump, there was a sigh of relief for H1B visa holders as Trump had assured them easy stay in America and a path to citizenship. However just a week after this tweet According to the US think tank, H-1B visa holders are "often" employed in poor working conditions and they are suspected to be abused. The Think Tank on Thursday gave information about this and demanded to improve it by a satisfactory increase in their salary.
In its report, 'South Asia Center of the Atlantic Council' also demanded the good work conditions for the visa holders. This report has been prepared by Rooney Diamond of Howard University and Bharat Gopalaswamy, Head of South Asia Center of the Atlantic Council. According to the report, the present system not only damages the Americans but also hides the possibility of abuse with H-1B personnel.
According to the report, "H-1B workers are working on low wages, their fear of harassment continues and work conditions are not good for them, due to their proper right not only will their lives change, But Employees will also get better security. "
It has been said in the report that adopting adequate safeguards will also ensure that the H-1B program contributes to the US economy by meeting the shortage of workers by recruiting foreign workers.
Think Tank suggested three major improvements and said that they should be applied to all employers. These include measures like increasing the salary of H-1B visa holders and implementing an effective and appropriate procedure. Significantly, there is a large number of Indians working on H-1B visas in the US.
