H-1B Visas taken up by outsourcers

H-1B Visas are used by outsources who move US jobs overseas

Offshore outsourcing companies continued to make up the majority of the top H-1B visa users in 2013. This is based on the latest government data.

These offshore firms have been adding employees by the thousands as their revenues increase. Infosys (India based company) led the list in 2013 with 6,298  visas approved. They just edged out Tata (another India based) which had 6258 visas approved last year.  Cognizant, a New Jersey-based IT services provider with major operations overseas, led the list in 2012 but dropped to 3rd. The company had 5,186 visas in 2013 versus 9,281 visas approved in 2012 versus 5,095 in 2011.
