IFPTE Opposes HR 107, the So-called Protect and Grow American Jobs Act

IFPTE weighed in this week with House lawmakers in relation to legislation introduced by California Congressman, Darrell Issa, which would raise the minimum salary threshold for H-1B dependent employers from $60,000 to $100,000, while ignoring the much needed reforms needed within the H-1B program.

IFPTE informed Congress that, "While we appreciate the good faith effort of this legislation, simply raising the wage requirement while ignoring the many other problems associated with the H-1B program will not prevent employers from firing U.S. workers."
