Re: To fix this...

I held an H-1B visa through the mid-90s. The B does make a lot of difference. It did not have the "no displacement" clause attached. The main requirements were that the position needed at least a BA and wages had to be at or above "market rates" (only INS had no statistics on that - that is where the gaming started. By the time it was time for me to renew, that piece had been delegated to the Dept of Labor and they got lost in their own paperwork.) The rules have changed significantly since those days. The program has become unrecognizable and is now mostly a money printing machine for the Feds.
