    For lower skilled guest workers as well, called the 'W' visa.

    What's in the Business-Labor Deal on Immigration?

    There will be at most 20,000 W visas in the first year, 35,000 in the second year, 55,000 in the third, and 75,000 in the fourth.

    And by the fourth year there will be all kinds of 'carve outs' and exclusions to this cap just like there are on the H-1B so that even though the H-1B cap is 65,000, the number of H-1B petitions granted is almost six times this number.

    The paymasters of both parties want the bill passed, and it will get passed, for better and worse

    The good news being that the members of the cult of victimhood in both political parties will have something to blame each other for going forward.

    One of the things that galls me the most about this 'deal' is that Richard Trumka, who represents less than ten percent of the American workforce, gets to play the great 'representative of the American worker' in all of this and in doing so sold the American worker down the river.
