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.

Data: CDC and state Covid dashboards. Dani Alberti/Axios

Of the 164 million vaccinated Americans, around 125,000 people have tested positive for breakthrough infections and 0.001% have died, according to state data compiled from state dashboards by NBC and data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Why it matters: While "breakthrough cases" have been getting media attention, the low numbers show that the pandemic is mostly a threat for the unvaccinated population.
