Trump is FINALLY doing something about the H1B issue (Main Board)

An H1b candidate is more attractive than the experienced American worker, even when the H1b is getting paid a little more and not as skilled. That's because the H1b has indentured servant status and can't switch jobs easily.

I have been puzzled by this. H1b are not paid significantly less than their US citizen counterparts is my guess, so why are they preferred? One is the reason that you mentioned i.e cannot switch jobs easily, the other I think is the willingness to work extra hours which in the eyes of the average manager/interviewer equates to more productivity. Another one is plain discrimination, the sheer number of Indians means that they just hire their own kind which happen to most of the H1Bs
