The article fails to mention that most of the programming jobs and salaries listed are far below what the same positions paid in 1998 – 20 years ago. And below the prevailing wage, which is illegal under H-1B law.
If you adjust a 1998 $140K salary for inflation, over 20 years, the prevailing wage today should be more like around $240K – which only the VP and exec positions listed paid.
More proof H-1B is about cheap labor and is illegally being used to fix wages – which is a federal crime under US law. Why haven’t JPMoragn’s execs been arrested for criminal wage fixing since their own data proves that is what they are doing?
