Submission + - 2013 H-1B Visa Supply Nearly Exhausted ( 1

CowboyRobot writes: "Last year work visas did not run out until late November, but this year the pool of visas is almost entirely claimed and it's still only June.
One interpretation of this is that the tech industry is hiring much more actively than it was a year ago.
Some companies, such as Microsoft, have been lobbying to increase the number of available visas (currently limited to 65,000) while others argue that offering visas to foreign workers reduces job prospects for Americans."
