re: Pew research data: white Catholics continuing to leave the dem party - ewdij
The same article also has another table (the last one) which states between 2000-2016 the % of Catholic voters have shrunk by over 11%, while the religiously unaffiliated have increased by 66%. Democrats definitely need to fix the problem of more and more Catholics not voting for them. But in the...

re: LA County flyer advertising to illegals how to use taxpayer funded services - ewdij
This is not for illegals. This is for legal immigrants. Right now illegals can't be legally admitted to USA or can't seek permanent residency. Only legal immigrants can. [b]Please justify why you think this is for illegals? Where does it say illegals/undocumented-immigrants can use these benef...

re: H-1B Visa Bill Introduced In US, Minimum Pay More Than Doubled - ewdij
[quote]T1 is already in India. They tried to move T2 to India as a trial run and it absolutely failed miserably. It actually almost cost us a few customer contracts (my customers are TMobile, ATT, Sprint, Verizon). They now keep T2 Stateside and T3 is shared between US/Indonesia/Espoo (Finland). ...

re: Word has it H1B visas will be targeted by executive order today - ewdij
[quote]You seem to have a good understanding of everything. With the new EO, will this have any effect on H1-B cap exempt positions for physicians applying to non-profit institutions? They make well over the $130K minimum salary and would be in high need area where US Physicians couldn't be recruite...

re: H-1B Visa Bill Introduced In US, Minimum Pay More Than Doubled - ewdij
I am an Indian and I am on H1B. I have read the bill. I support everything that the bill proposes. It is good for US workers, it is good for H1B workers. I doubt it will pass. Similar bill was introduced before and it did not pass. Main opposition came from Immigration Lawyers's Lobby and all ...

[quote]Top 2 H1-B firms are Indian firms. Indians get an absolutely unfair amount of visas. [/quote] Completely agree. [quote]How is it discriminatory? Is it discriminatory that Indians get over 70% of H1B visas every year? [/quote] The wait is certainly because there are more Indian ap...

re: Reddit is so liberal its scary - ewdij
[quote]Does this mean that Indians are targeted for an increase wait or that there are more Indian applications to process? The latter seems far more likely. [/quote] The wait is certainly because there are more Indian applicants. But when you allocate the same number of green cards to India as...

[quote]They need to make the salary required higher than it currently sits.[/quote] Would not solve much beyond a certain point. Salary is just one part. The other part is time. The companies that abuse H1b workers, make them work for 10-12 hours anyway. They will bump that to 15-16 hours now....

re: Reddit is so liberal its scary - ewdij
[quote]Yes Indians have a longer wait. There are quotas and there are a LOT of Indians that want to come here since they speak English. Not sure it is particularly discriminatory more just an artifact of government intervention into what could be handled by supply and demand.[/quote] I agree....
