Hi all. Do you know about the basic salary in US of a programmer which has experienced three years in J2EE field ?
Is there any deduction from this salary ?
Thanks a lot

It will depend on where in US you are working or going to work.
Ofcourse there are deductions, you will have to pay taxes.

Also there's the H1-B "penalty". Reports are that H1-Bs typically get paid about 60% of what the going rate would be for non H1-Bs. Although you can find plenty of arguments about whether such a penalty exists and how much it really is.

True.

Besides the low salary, H-1B alien workers usually do not receive the benefits or perks (e.g., health insurance, paid vacations, 401K pension and training, etc.) - especially if the alien is working as a contractor/consultant.

In terms of the real income, a J2EE developer with 3 years experience would make:

  • $60,000 - $80,000 per year for the U.S. citizens
  • $30,000 - $50,000 per year for the H-1B aliens

    Just my opinion.

    I dont think the H1 workers with 3 years experience will be paid as low as 30,000. Mostly it will be around 60K.

    I have many such friends, who is getting even more than 60K. Its really an exception, if one gets only in the range of 30-50k.

    Maybe Jay Shin doesn't want more Indians to come to USA on H1 to take his job away, hence he scares potential H1 guys in all posts.

    Minimum salary depends on State minimum for H1 -B Visa employer has to pay state minimum .It varies but not low as 30000 USD pa .It some what between 40-45000 USD .For H1 B depends on exp and technolgy in demand.

    On average you can get 50-60,000USD initally if this is your first job .
    On high end it may go up to 80 -90,000 USD pa .
