Last year the United States admitted 137,000 temporary foreign workers on the Specialty H-1B visa. Little has been known until recently about the characteristics of these workers, and nothing has been known about their employers. This paper describes the characteristics of the leading or “top” 100 employers of H-1Bs by marrying the company names provided by the Immigration and Naturalization Service with data obtained from Dun and Bradstreet’s U.S. Marketing Lists. We find that these top users of H-1Bs are not typical of the U.S. economy or the information technology industry in particular.
