WIPRO is planning to lay off 500 H1B visa holders - by end of January 2017

This is Charlotte, North Carolina. About 500 folks to be laid off all #H1B holders - what will people do? What about families? It's a terrible start of the year.

American are justified in claiming H1B is badly misused. Indian companies are indulging excess profiteering even in the domestic job market. Senior employees are systematically being denied opportunity to work on new technologies and the fired after they train junior employees.

many of the victims of the practice evolved by nasscom aligned companies fall in the age band of 35-45 years are falsely labeled as technically outdated and non performers. They are denied credit for their work for period of 2-3 years and them labeled as mediocre nad placed in special bucket list which is secretly maintained. Once a person is put in the bucket the person will find himself frequently on bench and denied allocation into project even if he is found suitable and clears client interview. companies have cruel practice of not hiring those who are not on working, effectively ending careers of the people who are fired.

Indian IT firms have some very outdated and bad HR practices that snatch all right of employees.
