Here are the 25 biggest H1B sponsors of 2016

India's information technology (IT) sector will face temporary setback to move workers from India to the US with the bill introduced in the US House of Representatives that mandates minimum wages of H1B visa holders at $130,000, double the current limit.

The 2017 H1B Report is a decent indicator of how the Indian IT and American IT companies were placed in terms of average salary and number of LCAs in 2016.

LCA stands for Labor Condition Application. LCA is a mandatory document that the H1B Sponsor/ employer needs to file with US Department of Labor before they file the H1B petition with USCIS (United States Citizenship and Immigration Services)for any non-immigrant worker.
