It is important that you understand these numbers

By law, the H-1B visa is limited to 85,000 per year.

But the data shows that there is a little extra each year because of initial and continuing approvals.

These numbers can best be shown by the orange and grey lines on this chart.

That chart and others can be found via the link above this line.

I have downloaded their data and added it to this report.

For 2019, we had 664,616 H-1B applications aka LCA’s.

We had 117,436 Initial Approvals

We had 190,284 Continuing Approvals

This is a combined total of 307,720 H-1B Approvals.

and here is the governments own report showing the 664,616 number

So you believe that non-immigrant guest workers on a H-1B create jobs?

Here are the facts using our own government data that you can easily retrieve via the following link yourself.

Fact 1: the H-1B Scam began in 1990

Notes: I have highlighted in Green the years when we created more than 3 million jobs per year and as you can see, they are few, and all except for the year 2000 were BEFORE 1990

Notes: I have highlighted in Red the years when we have negative numbers and I find it interesting that in 1982 we had negative numbers because that was the year I got out of the Navy, and found it really interesting that in 1991, the year AFTER implementing the H-1B scam, we again had negative numbers.

Notes: in 2002 we had negative numbers and 2003 was the year many of us like mike and myself became unable to find work.

Notes: 2008, 09, and 10 – we know what that was and the same in 2020.

So tell me, where are those jobs?
