Record number of H1-B applications submitted as future of visa program in doubt

The New York Times reports that a record number of H1-B visa applications have been submitted prior to Monday, the first day of the official application period. These visas are predominantly popular with tech companies looking to hire temporary skilled workers. But the Trump administration has signaled that the program could be overhauled or shut down due to abuse by employers looking for cheap workers to the detriment of American workers.
