The low unemployment rate in computer occupations contradicts Trump administration claims an emergency requires new H-1B visa rules.
NFAPResearchDHS and DOL claimed an unemployment emergency in its H-1B rules. But: “The unemployment rate in computer occupations stood at 3.5% in Sept. 2020, not changed significantly from the 3% unemployment rate in January 2020.” @LizMair@m_clem@patrickc@erikbry
The Trump administration will soon publish a rule to restrict H-1B visas. Companies are expected to challenge the rule in court.
NFAPResearch.@wstock215: “The #H1B regulation will continue the current trend of employers sending high-value technology work offshore because of policies from this administration that are keeping and pushing key personnel outside the U.S.” @m_clem@erikbryn@gsiskind
