Friday May 21st 2010 by Datamation.com Staff

A University of Maryland study finds that foreign workers in the U.S. make 8-13 percent more than their American counterparts.

eWeek: IT workers often complain that management hires foreign workers on H-1B visas in order to keep salaries low. However, a new University of Maryland report finds the opposite: foreign workers generally make more than those born in the U.S.

According to the report titled "Are Foreign IT Workers Cheaper? U.S. Visa Policies and Compensation of Information Technology Professionals," "IT professionals without U.S. citizenship earn approximately 8.1 percent more than those with U.S. citizenship; IT professionals on an H-1B or other work visa earn approximately 7.9 percent more than those with U.S. citizenship; and IT professionals with a green card earn approximately 13.6 percent more than those with U.S. citizenship or work visa holders."
