Trump DOES get the credit. He made his position clear long before the h1b applications. Read some of the indian paper - they are all saying it's the "Trump Effect".

"Who wants to work in the US anyway?
I mean it's hugely expensive, there is little infrastructure, there are only few jobs that are interresting and non destructive."
odd you don't say where you're from. I've had the good fortune to travel in over 50 countries. the US has no equal.
"Dr. Michio Kaku speaks about how America's poor educational system has created a shortage of Americans who can perform high skilled technology jobs. As a result, America's H-1B Genius visa is used to attract immigrants who are skilled enough to perform these jobs."
LOL! so skilled they have to be trained by the americans they are replacing. kids today aren't stupid. they see tech wages falling. why invest in a IT degree?
"Great, so instead of importing people do do the jobs in the US, they'll just offshore the jobs to wherever the people are. That way you lose not only the job itself but all the work and subsidiary jobs associated with it."
not all jobs can be offshored. if these big tech companies wanted to move, they would move. as for the subsidiary jobs, even those are less with an h1b. h1bs earn les, so they spend less. they live 6 guys to a one bedroom apt. they don't buy cars, shop (eve see an indian in a mall?), eat out (I always see them packing their lunches), they are also busy sending money back to their home country.
as a US citizen, I DEMAND greedy corporations stop hiring h1b guestworkers and pay a living wage to Americans. wages for IT workers have gone down steadily for 15+ years. kids aren't stupid - why would they go into IT these days?
as a US citizen, I DEMAND my government end the h1b guestworker program immediately.
