H-1B Visa Reform would include the following:
The newly created W-Visa Program For Lower-Skilled Workers will be available for foreign nationals having a foreign residence who will come to the U.S. to perform services or labor for a registered employer in a registered position. The spouse and minor children of the W visa holder will be allowed to accompany or follow to join and will be given work authorization for the same period of admission the W nonimmigrant is allowed to be here. To be eligible, he or she cannot be inadmissible, has to pass a criminal background check, and agree to accept only registered positions in the U.S. A certified foreign national may be granted W nonimmigrant status for an initial period of three years and may renew his or her status for additional three year periods.
A portable, at-will employment based visa (W-3 visa) and a contract-based visa (W-2 visa) would replace the current H-2A program.
