How This Impacts Mobility
The hiring of foreign nationals in the U.S. forms one of the many bedrocks to workforce mobility. These new rules would severely restrict companies’ ability to hire high-skilled foreign talent by imposing additional criteria and raising the wage of H-1B applicants. Companies are in a difficult position as they may be required to pay foreign national workers more than their U.S. workers in order to fill key positions.
