Every Indian immigrant’s attention is currently on the upcoming proposal from Donal Trump’s administration on the H1B Visa.
If the proposal becomes an official regulation, more than 4,00,000 Indians are likely to pack bags to India. Though this is a worrying factor for the Indian IT professionals, the IT Industry body NASSCOM said, it causes more harm to the US IT Industry.
Currently, over 2 million STEM jobs are vacant in the US. Out of these, 1 million lies in the IT sector. This clearly points out a huge skill gap in the US. Given the political motives, the gap will further broaden if Trump goes ahead with his H1B Visa tweaking.
The lack of skilled IT professionals in the US made it imperative for the MNCs to outsource the talent from countries like India and China.
The administration needs to publish the proposed changes in something called Federal Register. The Government needs to wait for a month, seeking public’s opinion and comments. Post that, the proposed draft will be read and evaluated. This whole process will take months to complete,’ said Prof Stephen Yale-Loehr.
In the wake of ‘Buy American, Hire American’ initiative, Trump might actually end up creating a huge void in the already existing skill gap in the US.happy wheels
