NewsInteresting stats on the 2014 H-1B job Visa applications Pin

The largest consumer of that Visa is Infosys, they consume almost 40% of the available cap for an year, and their average H-1B salary is 76K. Not high, but not peanuts either consider most first time visa employees are in their mid 20s. But for me, the really interesting bits were the salary averages for the big companies like Microsoft and Google. Microsoft's average H-1b pay is 113K, Google's is 126K, Oracle's 113, Amazon has 109K, Apple pays a nice 130K, Facebook 123K, and here's a surprise, Walmart pays 113K average. I know there's a big outcry about these big companies hiring foreign workers and people always say it's because they pay peanuts, but salaries upwards of 110-120K for people under 30 seems to be on the higher side of affairs as far as I can see. Bit of an eye opener here.
