H-1B Visa Policies Favor Large Companies, Study Says

Sep 18, 2019

A study by researchers at Cornell University and UC San Diego shows that although foreign workers educated in science and engineering at American universities get offers from tech start-ups at the same rate as US citizens, they are only half as likely to be hired.  This study finds that the employment discrepancy is not explained by foreign workers’ preferences for secure jobs or higher pay, but instead because more established companies have an advantage over start-ups in sponsoring foreign employees for H-1B visas.  That’s where we come in.  MobSquad helps tech start-ups and scale-ups fill technical talent gaps by near-shoring technology teams in Canada.
