Workers choosing to work outside U.S. due to immigration issues

On Behalf of | Jun 13, 2019 | Employment Immigration |

There are many companies in Miami and across the U.S. that rely on foreign workers. Many of these companies use highly skilled tech workers for their important business needs. Lately it has become more difficult for these workers to enter the U.S. and become foreign workers for these companies. And companies have had a harder time finding qualified workers for their growing needs.

Despite many companies in Miami needing skilled tech workers, they are having a harder time getting the workers they need. Recently it appears that foreign interest in tech jobs in the U.S. has declined with foreign workers beginning to have more interest in Canadian tech jobs. In May, 14 percent of Canadian tech jobs clicked on in the Indeed website were from foreign workers where just 9 percent of American tech jobs clicked on in Indeed were from foreign workers. Experts believe the decline of interest in American jobs among tech workers is due to the increasing difficulty of obtaining an H-1B visa.

U.S. companies are certainly feeling the effect of having a harder time finding qualified workers. Companies rely on skilled foreign workers to keep their business current and grow their business into the future. With the U.S. policy continually changing toward immigration it can be hard for businesses to find the employees they need. A legal professional who is skilled in immigration can help their client with their employment needs. An immigration attorney understands how hard it can be for companies to obtain the foreign tech workers they need. An attorney can help companies get the visas they need and represent their foreign employment needs and help their company look attractive to foreign workers.

As the U.S. continues to make it harder for immigrants to enter the U.S., companies can have problems finding qualified employees. An attorney can help these companies work through the immigration system to obtain the employees they need for their business.
