H1B Restrictions on Staffing Companies are Bad News
This report was released in February, but remains an important issue to the IT industry as companies plan to increase IT investment and hence IT jobs. The H1B restrictions for consulting and staffing firms will adversely affect hiring plans and potentially slow our recovery efforts. This is especially true for smaller and younger staffing companies. The fallout from this new policy will be fewer start-up companies and more jobs sent off-shore.
