Greed in America has college grads expecting wages that long time workers have...THERE is a thing about learning and starting at the bottom...and if companies can find foreign workers who appreciate what they are paid...that's ok...

Increase the amount. There are so many jobs that high-skilled immigrant workers do that U S citizens would never do even if it meant unemployment for them. Businesses should not take advantage of these high-skilled immigrant workers by paying them cheap wages. I believe they should earn a fair wage.

the US is one of the hardest countries to get a skilled work visa, we want to be able to go overseas and work in other countries but we don't want to reciprocate. In the interest of cooperation, we should make it easier to get these visas, so that we can receive them ourselves if so desired.

The high-skilled standard is ableist and excludes immigrants who do not meet ridiculous standards. You can't place the value of a person on their ability.

Increase, however, it is important to ensure that these immigrants do not come into the country illegally and do not have a criminal record.

As long as they are legal immigrants that have been well screened, I don’t care.

@95YQVLF from New York answered…5 days

Decrease, and ban paying immigrants less than native-born workers.

@95YM55M from California answered…5 days

If someone has the skill and is willing to work they should get the job. Additionally, regardless of citizenship status everyone should be paid the same base wage. Underpaiding those without citizenship only helps the wealthy and divides with working class.

I think an increase is fine as we may be able to learn from them as they are learning from us.

@95VJ3SZfrom Vermont  answered…1wk

Visas should be given to anyone in need of a better live, priority should be given to those most in need of fulfillment, jobs should not be one's primary means of support with the beginnings of automation.

@95THN4Rfrom New Jersey  answered…1wk

Increase, and the government should provide more incentives for current citizens for these jobs

@95T982XProgressive from Wisconsin answered…1wk

We should encourage and provide our own citizens with incentives for these jobs, but also grant work-visas when needed, although highly regulate so companies do not take advantage of this system.

@95T333S from California answered…1wk

If they are here to improve the economy they should be granted citizenship.

@95SLGBK from Missouri answered…1wk

I'm satisfied with the current amount, but companies should be required to reimburse them at the same rate they'd give a citizen.

@95SJ2MKfrom Maine  answered…1wk

I believe if they are highly skilled they deserve to have the same as other highly skilled workers we should all be treated equally it depends if they are working hard yes they should have a higher pay

@95JQXKB from Washington answered…2wks

I think that we should increase the amount of work visas given, but companies need to be held accountable for pay and treatment. Work laws and regulations should apply not matter who is working or what the job is.

@95GRCJX from New Jersey answered…3wks
