My Visa Jobs, which helps foreign workers identify which employers are most likely to sponsor their work visas, just released their list of companies ranked according to the number of submitted applications for H-1B workers in 2017.

Why it matters: The Trump administration is looking to crack down on H-1B visa use, which it sees as taking jobs from American workers.

Here's the top 25 companies with the number of Labor Condition Applications (LCA) submitted, which are required when hiring workers on an H-1B visa, and the average salary for those offers.

Note: Companies may file multiple LCAs for a single H-1B petition, which means LCA numbers are often higher than actual H-1B petition numbers. The LCA data, however, is still useful in indicating which companies rely most heavily on H-1B workers.

Takeaway: This is the typical mix of companies that rely on H-1B visas — mostly outsourcing and technology companies.
