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.

General Motors tries to revive incendiary lawsuit vs. Fiat Chrysler

General Motors is trying to revive an incendiary lawsuit against Fiat Chrysler Automobiles with explosive new allegations including bribes paid from secret offshore bank accounts and a union official acting as a double agent between the two automotive giants.

Why it matters: The extraordinary legal battle is occurring amid earth-shaking changes in the global auto industry that threaten to turn both litigants into dinosaurs if they aren't nimble enough to pivot to a future where transportation is a service, cars run on electrons and a robot handles the driving.

Cuomo says all New York schools can reopen for in-person learning

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Friday that all school districts across the state can choose to reopen for in-person learning because it has so far maintained low enough coronavirus transmission rates.

Why it matters: It’s another sign that the state, once the global epicenter of the pandemic, has — at least for now — successfully curbed the spread of the virus even as infections have surged elsewhere around the country.
