It is a well known fact that the h1-b bodyshoppers/IT consulting companies exploit the system(laws) and their employee's for their own ends.

When everyone knows that these body shoppers are filing all the 65k h1's in one day for the jobs that are non existant with them, why no one is questioning it ?

These companies are not only grabbing all the available quota of h1's for locking in the techies(employees) and exploiting them but at the same time depriving the actual real companies (where work is done) from hiring the h1b techies.

Am just amazed at this pesudo demand of h1b created by these cyotes, isnt there any law to prohibit such malpractise/ cheating of the system ?

Also how can Attorney's and Law firms help in filing these made-up h1's are not they under oath to not do such malpractise ?

Agree with the post above.. Lots of H1Bs are filed by unscrupulous employers who bring a person on H1B and don't pay them till they get a contract / client to bill the H1B to..

USCIS needs to investigate this.. Time to write to USCIS to be more vigilant in monitoring these firms to ensure real people with real jobs out there can get the H1Bs

Looks like from the posts from the main page that its a love-hate relationship between these job-shops. And the problem is analogous to chicken & egg problem, one can never understand who is insane and one cannot survive without the other.

Also may be this cannot be generalized but must be dealt on case by case basis. As every individual and entity and their circumstantial situation is different.
