a company now wishes to hire a badly needed engineer from abroad, it
will need to wait till October 1, 2012 before this person can come on

to hire skilled and talented workers in order to grow and compete in the
global economy. The hiring of an H-1B worker does not displace a US

is particularly counterintuitive with the H-1B cap is that is
completely negates the recent Administration’s policy to encourage
foreign entrepreneurs to create startup companies, resulting in job
growth." - Cyrus D. Mehta, Nov. 23, 2011.
