Immigration bill could hike IT hiring, or send more IT jobs offshore, says Gartner

Patrick Thibodeau | June 11, 2013

The legislation's so-called 50/50 restriction stipulates that temporary foreign workers are limited to 50% of their U.S. workforce by 2017.

There are displacement and job advertising provisions in the bill that will increase customer lead-times for using visa workers.
