How traditional vendors underpay non-citizen workers…

Amit came to the United States to earn his Master's degree studying Computer Science. An excellent student, Amit’s GPA made him highly sought after during on-campus recruiting periods. He was hired by an IT consulting firm soon after he graduated.

Loss of income.
Amit was earning $20/hr. He soon discovered that his employer was billing the client $80/hr for his service. That meant Amit was earning only 25% of the end client's bill rate for his services. 

Some employers will exploit foreign workers by sponsoring their work visas and, in turn, providing salaries and benefits far below market value. Because non-citizens rely on their employers to maintain legal work status, the company has little risk of losing their employee–as a result, there is little incentive to increase wages or provide additional benefits.

Amit joined IQ Tech Pros. He was able to continue working on the same project and earned 90% of his client bill rate. Amit was now earnig $72/hr–over 250% MORE than he earned with the traditional vendor.

Amit's income with IQ Tech Pros $72/hr
Amit's income with the traditional vendor $20/hr
The IQ Tech Pros Difference $52/hr
