H-1B workers in the information technology field are better educated and earn more money than US workers in IT field, according to a new report by the Public Policy institute of California. However, the report is not without its critics.
The report found that the average wage income of an H-1B IT worker is 10 percent higher than that of a US worker. The report also shows that the average age of an H-1B IT worker is 30, while the average US IT worker is age 40. Less than 25 percent of US workers have a graduate degree, while nearly 50 percent of H-1B workers have a graduate degree.
