  1. You’re probably Indian if you are watching this…because in 2016 Indians were 74.2 percent of all H1bs, but rose to 75.6% in 2017  (while china is number 2 way back at only 9.3 to 9.4%) (cut to the EB5 visa option may explain why so much fewer Chinese use the h-1b, but for more of the EB5 visa, watch for our update on that).
  2. Initial H-1B petions dropped again in 2017 – down from 70,737 in 2016 to only 67,815 in 2017 – perhaps illustrating the Trump effect
  3. In all there were 276,423 Indians on H-1b visas in 201.
  4. It a myth that H-1Bs depress wages becuase of the minimum of 60k that is required by law because the average h1b earns 85,000 in 2017.
  5. H-1bs are far more likely to have a master’s degree than the average american – 44.5% of the approfed pettiions were for people with at a masters degree – 6.6 percent had a doctorate.
  6. Bonus – h-1bs continue to become the tech visa as computer releated occupations rose another 6.6% from 2016 to 2017 up to 254,592 woks with computer related H1Bs
