Indians working in America are paid an equal, if not higher, wage. If fact, Indians are the richest ethnic group per capita according to the Census.

(I’ll concede that outsourcing though is done at a much cheaper rate, but firms also get a lower quality work product usually.)

Everything comes down to hard work. I firmly believe anybody can make six figures, within a short period of time depending on their background, and anybody can become a millionaire, if they work hard enough. However, those that are worried about the competition more so than themselves are doomed for failure.

Your thinking is scarily muddled here. As an *ethnic group* Indians make more money per capita. In a specific *field*, IT, H1Bs are payed quite a bit less. In theory the H1B is supposed to work the way you think. In practice the majority of H1B's are indentured labor.

Does that help?

Most H1Bs are paid less than Americans are

As for Indians....most are legal immigrants and US citizens....not H1Bs. Their high per capita income is because many are in the medical and hospitality field....most are in professional type of work and are paid comprable to Americans

Yes, I probably should not willy-nilly refer to H1Bs as all “Indians”...since many H1Bs are from all over the world. But the problem with the H1B is that it is used to undercut Americans....not to bring in real foreign talent
