Geography of H-1B Workers

In 2012, it took only ten weeks for employers to reach the United States' cap on the H-1B visas they need to hire immigrant workers in speciality occupations. This situation presents a problem for certain industries, such as biotechnology, and this special presentation from the Brookings Institution's Metropolitan Policy Program brings together a set of policy experts to talk about this matter. The site includes videos from the July 18, 2012 session, complete with a discussion of the geography of H-1B workers and the political feasibility of amending the existing H-1B policy. The site also includes an uncorrected transcript of the proceedings, along with links to a working paper on the subject.
