New H-1B visa bill introduced to set wage floor

The American Tech Workforce Act of 2021 was introduced by Rep Jim Banks, head of the Republican Study Committee in the US House of Representatives.

It is expected to set a wage floor for H-1B visa recipients equaling the pay of American workers currently in the same position or $110,000, whichever is higher. The bill would foster accountability of big tech companies.
