Apple Computer files average salaries that could lower for actual hires than the going rate for the San Francisco Bay area

Granted that Apple may pay individuals more than is stated in the application, but they do have the option to pay less.  That is the core of the issue with the H-1B visa program as it is implemented today.

The question is the program to be be altered in such a way to eliminate the possibility that companies like India based outsources can use the program for their own profit at the expense of US workers’.

In our next IT salary survey we will address this issue this issue in depth.  Janco’s survey is an industry standard and is (and has been) used by over 3,000 organizations in the US and Canada, In addition, the results of the survey have been published in the Wall Street Journal and CNN to mention a few media outlets.
