Greed in America has college grads expecting wages that long time workers have...THERE is a thing about learning and starting at the bottom...and if companies can find foreign workers who appreciate what they are paid...that's ok...

Increase the amount. There are so many jobs that high-skilled immigrant workers do that U S citizens would never do even if it meant unemployment for them. Businesses should not take advantage of these high-skilled immigrant workers by paying them cheap wages. I believe they should earn a fair wage.

the US is one of the hardest countries to get a skilled work visa, we want to be able to go overseas and work in other countries but we don't want to reciprocate. In the interest of cooperation, we should make it easier to get these visas, so that we can receive them ourselves if so desired.

The high-skilled standard is ableist and excludes immigrants who do not meet ridiculous standards. You can't place the value of a person on their ability.

@9RJBQ24Republican from Georgia answered…5 days

No, we need to encourage our own citizens to apply to these jobs instead.

Increase, but also increase visas given to workers of all skills.

@9L8QNKPLibertarian from New Jersey answered…3mos

There are too many variables involved to make a general rule of thumb decision. the number of work visas available should be constantly adjusted based on both the US economy and the World economy.

so long as the individual is not here illegally then allow them to work if they wish to, however, we should also encourage incentives for native citizens to work as well.

The number of work visas issued for workers of all skill levels should be based on demand employers should have to prove that there is not a qualified US citizen willing to take that position

@9KCBBP2Green from Maryland answered…3mos

Increase, but pay salary no less than U.S. citizens market value for high skilled workers, i.e. create level playing field based on skill level and comparable salaries.

@9KBTNWXWomen’s Equality from Oklahoma answered…3mos

I am on the fence about this topic and I have yet to hear a compelling argument on this topic from either side.

@9KBKNPCGreen from California answered…3mos

Allow levels to be set by a politically neutral agency with a dual-mandate of promoting domestic workforce development and meeting strategic workforce needs.

@9K9L2Z7Socialist from Washington answered…3mos

Fund higher education for US citizens, so we do not need to import skilled labor from abroad.

Increase, and provide an easy path to citizenship for immigrants once they graduate from a trade school or university

Regardless, penalize companies taking advantage of this program to decrease wages

@9JCBB8QPeace and Freedom from New Hampshire answered…3mos

Decrease, get rid of them entirely and let them be permanent residents with permanent jobs.

@9JC8CZZSocialist from Florida answered…3mos

I honestly couldn't care less about work visas. If a company here wants to hire a highly skilled Mexican man, that man should receive a work visa to come here and work.

@9J9ZMSTWomen’s Equality from Indiana answered…3mos

Positions should be filled according to qualifications only. If an immmigrant is more qualified than the other applicants, then you provide them the work visa. Don't increase or decrease for the sake of it, do it because a candidate is qualified.

@9HX7SKNTranshumanist from North Carolina answered…3mos

The number of temporary work visas should be equal to need of beneficial skilled immigrant workers.

@annie.boo1995Peace and Freedom from California answered…3mos

I don't have enough education to form an opinion, but I'm leaning towards the government providing incentives for our citizens to take on these jobs.

Decrease, and perform detailed background checks particularly for military/dual-use technology related fields

@9HK88DMLibertarian from Pennsylvania answered…3mos

@dwb21317Veteran from Mississippi answered…3mos

Decrease until the government can develop laws against organizations using them to lay off skilled American workers.

@9HK88DMLibertarian from Pennsylvania answered…3mos

We should re-evaluate our immigration laws to make it easier for immigrants to come in legally, and jobs should be given to whoever is best for the position.

@9HJPMDZSocialist from Texas answered…3mos

The US should shift from business based economy to human-life sustainable economy, so increase

@9HHY7RMLibertarian from California answered…3mos

People should be free to travel and to work wherever they want. No papers should be required for a basic human right.
