IMMIGRANTS ARE FILLING STEM SHORTAGES IN OHIO

HIGH-SKILLED IMMIGRATION REFORM WOULD HELP OHIO’S COMPANIES COMPETE AND CREATE AMERICAN JOBS

  • High-skilled visa holders create jobs for U.S.-born workers: The new H-1B visas awarded to Ohio between 2010 and 2013 will translate into 11,855 new jobs for U.S.-born workers in the state by 2020.
  • Our visa system is costing jobs and revenue: Firm-level data from the 2007 and 2008 H-1B lotteries shows that the H-1B caps from those two years alone cost U.S.-born tech workers in the Columbus metropolitan area as many as 2,298 additional jobs and as much as $20.1 million in aggregate annual earnings by 2010. Akron, Ohio suffered as well – it experienced the 17th largest H-1B shock in the nation during the 2007 to 2008 period.
