Hi Guys,
I thought of posting a topic regarding h1b, usa, java , tax , pay and life style

I invite all H1b professionals around the world working in u.s and dreaming to work in u.s to reply about there experience and my queries.

To tell you I have been offered a job on h1b.

JAVA
--------------------------------
What is the future of java and in u.s particulary as .net is gaining momentum .
will .net ever overcome JAVA.

what technlogies and applications are in demand in u.s regarding java.?

WHat are the job scope if one only knows core java.?

what is a perfect combination of package for java technologies that one should come knowing/mastering to u.s on h1b.

H1B
----------------------

Although it is a speciallity occupation and people with bachelors in computer engineer and 2+ year exp are invited , still i have found that the u.s market doest not respect the 2 year exp and also the hiring consulting company abuses the consultants monetarily by not paying them market pay.
i know 2 years exp is not a something great...but many times peole have to search for 6 months for jobs ...
why is it so.. why is 2 indian years exp ==0 exp in u.s
is it true??
----------------------------------------------
Most of the consultants fail in interview due to lack of english knowledge and business etiquets.
is it true..??
how to improve business etiquets the american style..any links..sites..help..???

i know that american companies require knowledge of tibco..mq series...filenet and documentum...
which most of the h1b people dont have and they have to go and learn such technologies there...
and in return american recruiters treat them as non-knowledgeable persons...
is it true???


Many h1b consultants might be not having all credentials but still all h1b holders are considered as monsters i dont know why and are discriminated ..

PAY AND TAX STRUCTURE
-----------------------------------------------------------------
What is the pay that count to be above poverty level in u.s?
where does 50k/annum comes in the poverty level mark in new jersey state /edision city?
What is normal pay that one receives if he/she is american with 2 years experience ??? i am sure it would be more than 50k perhaps 80k annualy in cities like new york and jersey city ??/
WHAT IS THE TAX STRUCTURE ??
does all pay goes into taxable account?
is the total tax payable near to 33%?

how is the public transport system in new jersey ?
how is the transport system from new jersey to new york..how much time does it take to reach there..
-------------------------------------------------------
What is the life style in u.s
americans earn for 5 days and spend in week-ends?
How much does one needs to earn to live a u.s life style..with leisure and all expenses.???
---------------------------------------------------------------
One last request from my side..

i request all ranchers to post relevant answers/responses/queries to the post so that and such that ..everybody is benefited with knowledge..regarding u.s h1b...java market...tax and u.s life style..

one more request please ...please..dont fight over the topic of h1b abusing ..and americans jobs being thrown out...i surely dont want this topic to be discussed that way..

and last one..i dont know is this is the right place to put it but i suggest that there should be a forum on h1b..what does the people at javaranch thing regarding it..???


Thanks in advance to all replying...
Pathan.

In general, $50,000 per year in NJ/NY is a great offer for H-1B aliens if the employer is really paying the promised salary and is providing the standard employee benefits (such as Health Insurance, Paid Vacation and the 401K Pension Plan, etc.)

Most body shoppers do NOT pay the promised salary (especially if the alien employees were on bench for a certain period of time) and do NOT provide the employee benefits.

Many alien workers end up making $30,000 per year with no Health Insurance.

50K will get you nowhere in NYC. There are places in upstate NY, and maybe elsewhere in NJ, where you can live on that, but not anywhere close to NYC.

non-US citizens are referred to aliens by the govt. I havent experienced anyone calling another person by this! If you are expecting to rent an apartment by yourself and maintain a car in NY/NJ, 50 grand a year might not be that much. Again what is less for one person might be totally cool for someone else. I would say u can manage on 50K if u share an apartment with others and buy a used car in the tri-state area (NY, NJ and Conn.).
