US company fined for paying 12 H-1B employees below the required wages

Most people by now know that H-1B was all about cheap labor all along.

Problem for most business is: 1) wage-fixing is a federal crime, and 2) it’s illegal to even admit any foreign workers to the US for work under Title 8 if doing so harms the wages or working conditions of American workers.

This illegal cheap labor racket has been going on for 20 years. Most business in the US today is engaging in criminal wage-fixing.

“The US Department of Labour and Hour Division (WHD) during the investigation found the company, which has offices in Bengaluru and Hyderabad, violated the labour provisions of the H-1B visa program by paying its guest workers far below the required wages, the report said.

As a result, has been asked to pay its 12 employees $309,914 and has been slapped with a penalty of $45,564, it said.

As per the list maintained since 2013, a majority of willful violators are Indian Americans or companies owned by them. At least 10 companies, which includes eight willful violators have been debarred or disqualified from hiring foreign guest workers on H-1B visas“.

Not being unfairly targeted, India. You are a criminal looting nation and you know it.
