Potential Changes to H-1B Cap Lottery System
Three potential changes include:
- Switching the order in which the Regular Cap and Master's Degree Cap are selected-the change would have the Regular Cap lottery process go first
- Requiring companies to preregister for H-1B cap lottery filings
- Giving higher priority and weight to H-1B filings for individuals with higher degrees and higher wages.
So are these proposed changes a good thing or bad thing?
