Washington sources reported that H-1B workers are "frequently" placed in poor working conditions and "vulnerable to abuse", a US think tank claimed seeking reforms such as substantial increase in wages. Meanwhile in a report, the South Asia Center of the Atlantic Council also sought safeguards like providing fair working conditions, and greater employment rights for those working under the visa program.



Accordingly the report comes days after US President Donald Trump said he is soon coming out with reforms that will give H-1B visa holders certainty to stay in America and an easy pathway to citizenship. The report said the first, and most important, reform is to substantially raise the wages of H-1B workers. Furthermore if the United States is going to invite in the “best and brightest” workers, they ought to be paid in the top quartile”.

Secondly employers should demonstrate they have actively recruited US workers, and offered positions to qualified people, prior to turning to the H-1B program and thirdly the program needs an effective and efficient enforcement mechanism and further claiming that the current program compliance is complaint driven, resting almost entirely on whistleblowers to reduce fraud. This is a poor design.
