Article by Kisshia Simmons on "What you should know regarding the H1-B Registration March deadline"

"If implemented, the changes would eliminate the lottery and instead give preference to the highest-paid or highest-skilled workers, favoring high-paid industries over small businesses, nonprofits, or universities that typically offer lower wages regardless of qualifications," said Simmons.
