Actually when someone imports and sells it - he pays both the custom duty and the sales tax/vat.

Yes, they will benefit from the general decline in salaries, in the short term. But I am too wary of making any long term predictions. Too many variables at play.

Can Indian IT services survive on outsourcing alone? Current model of outsourcing requires quite a bit of online presence, which has suddenly become expensive. Will the outsourcing process evolve and adapt to the new situation? Hard to say...

True, but it appears it's just a prelude of things to come.
Well, at least the practice of some of the Indian IT "majors" who carpet bomb the visa lottery hoping to snag H1Bs will come to a stop

Default Re: Emigrating to a Foreign Land! Worth it?

My Job hunt experience in US for last 2 months in H1B visa.
Trying to apply to all direct employment opportunity in all job sites which i got from friends. I am a certified AWS Solutions architect associate and working on same. And number of opportunities are more compared to other technologies. When i say that i am under H1B, all employers except consultancies are denying it. Can see news on layoffs, call back to india from parent companies, zero % appraisals for being at onsite etc.

The Trump administration is making it more difficult for employment-based visa holders to extend their status in the USA.

Does this affect people who have applied for GC and must extend the H1B to stay in the country?

Unless the HR670 law passes which means shorter waiting lists, creating a life in USA on H1 type of Visa with house purchase etc., is foolhardy. Be ready to pack up and leave should be the motto. Do not get too comfortable.

Is your role more of Operations (Dev-ops type). Then the cause could be more related to how all this work is being outsourced to consultancies.

The reason is simple. If you do it yourself, and there is a breach which leads to problem, management heads roll. However, if its all outsourced, you can deflect the blame.

Saw this week that a group is trying to make changes to the quota for each country under the green card process. Lets see if we do notice any change as the H1B visa holders have no voting rights.

Landed in US by April-2017 and was able to switch employer. Joined an organization where the H1B employee count was lesser. I got extension for 3 years from here. However the previous employer(IT Major) was struggling with extension as the customers were not giving contracts for 6-12 Months. And many of them were ended up in RFEs
