Senate set to sniff 'stinky onion' immigration bill

Patrick Thibodeau | June 4, 2013
Grassley attacks last-minute H-1B provisions added to Senate immigration bill at the behest of the tech industry.

Schumer contended that the revised wage requirements would prevent employers from using H-1B visa holders as cheap labor, and would allow unhappy visa holders to more easily leave a company.

Republican lawmakers in the House, meanwhile, have released a plan of their own. The so-called Skills Visa Act would raise the base H-1B cap to 155,000 and increase the number of visas set aside for foreigners who earned advanced degrees at U.S. universities from 20,000 to 40,000.
